Historic Village [1]

During the 19th century, small communities began to proliferate on Staten Island. The Village of Edgewater, incorporated in 1866, included part of the present-day Stapleton and Clifron and, as its name implies, was a part of the continuous development that took place along the island's eastern shoreline. As these communities developed, public and private buildings and commercial structures were erected; notable among these is the Edgewater Village Hall, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was designed by local architect, Paul Kuhne.
