This event is a great family outing with no admission fee. The park is administered by the New York City Parks Department.

Staten Island's Historic Conference House

The Conference House, or Billop House as it was originally named, is on the southern most tip of Staten Island at the end of Hylan Boulevard. The park includes the historic Billop House, shore line and wooded nature trails with abundant bird and small wildlife, colonial gardens, guided tours of the Billop House, and live musical performances of traditional American music. The park extends right up to Raritan Bay with beach front trails and a pavilion overlooking the bay; perfect for a summer picnic.

The Conference House is so named because of the historic peace conference held there on September 11th 1776. Attended by British Lord Admiral Richard Howe and Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and Edward Rutledge. The talks were held two months after the Declaration of Independence was signed. The conference did not produce a peace treaty between the British and her American Colonies and the fight for independence continued. Read More about the Conference House
