70 Satterlee Street, Conference House Park
Our borough was the location for many facilities, factories, estates, and institutions from the early 1800s through the 1980s. Many are or were abandoned. We will look at the former Seaman’s Retreat (recently Bayley Seton Hospital), the Farm Colony and Sea View Hospital property, the old S.R. Smith Infirmary/Staten Island Hospital, several abandoned cemeteries, and the desolate locations left behind by the former Quarantine Department. Facts about these sites, their history, and their demise will be discussed. This program is a fundraiser for the Tottenville Historical Society. Cost: $8 payable by a check made out to the Tottenville Historical Society or by credit card.
