Talk with Pat Salmon: Institutionalized on Staten Island

Join us for a talk by Staten Island historian Pat Salmon. During the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries Staten Island was viewed as a healing environment for the ill and those who could not care for themselves. But there was also a darker side. Off-island residents sometimes saw the island as a distant location for those with contagious diseases or for those viewed as outcasts. For these and other reasons the Quarantine station, seaman's retreat, "Old Ladies' Home", Richmond county Almshouse (later the Farm Colony), Nursery and Children's Hospital, Sea View Hospital and others were established to house those "who required separation".
