History of Lighthouse Hill
The neighborhood's namesake 90-foot lighthouse tower was built in 1912, and it is the most recognizable landmark in the Hills, with a height of 90 feet, sitting perched atop Richmond Hill. For decades, the lighthouse kept ships from getting too close to Staten Island's rugged shoreline, and now, it continues to stand as a testament to period architecture, the history of the island, and its relationship to New York Harbor. Furthermore, Lighthouse Hill is adjacent to historic Richmond Town, a place that has been carefully preserved to show life as it was during the 18th and 19th Century, when Richmond Town was populated with Dutch, French, and English settlers. The town is a living museum, where visitors can spend the day watching period demonstrations and exploring the architecture of the time.
