Tottenville is rich in our nation’s history. Originally named Bentley Manor in 1675, titled after a ship called The Bentley. The ship belonged to Christopher Billop, one of Staten Island’s first European settlers. Bentley Manor was renamed Tottenville in 1869 after the prominent Totten family. Christopher Billop’s home, Billop Manor, was constructed in 1678 and on September 11th, 1776 became the site of a Revolutionary War peace conference between British and American delegates. You may have heard of the American delegates….Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Edward Rutledge. The peace talks failed and the Revolutionary war continued for another 7 years. Billop Manor was later renamed The Conference House, in honor of this historical event. Today the Conference house still stands, a symbol of Americana, and an invaluable piece of our nation’s history.
The house was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1966. The site also features a 267 acre park that protects a Native American archeological site once inhabited by the Lenape Tribe called “Burial Ridge”. Conference house park also features miles of hiking and biking trails, a beautiful beach, kayaking, a children’s playground, a visitor center with exhibit space, and a bay-side pavilion for events and historical reenactments that Staten Island residents can enjoy.
