My family likes this part as a favorite kind of historical settlement and a nice way to spend an afternoon.
A lot of locals were extra helpful with small things, which makes it even easier to fall for this place.
It is a series of old historic buildings. There is a old mill, church with a interesting cemetery and a series of about 6-8 other old buildings I have heard that there are tours and festivities held. But I have yet to come during any...More
We clearly visited Historic Richmondtown at the wrong time of year. The place was deserted except for a family having a child’s birthday party. We joined the guided tour of nine people in total, and while it started off with much promise, our guide took...More

I think it means they don't have tours those days and the visitor's center and museum is not open. The grounds would be open because it is just out in the open on a regular street/neighborhood, you could walk through it. You could walk right up to a bunch of the houses, they are just houses on the street. Frankly you probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the old houses and other houses around at a glance. It's not like it's some cordoned off area, much of it is alongside a busy road/intersection. There's an area you can walk through without traffic, it is about 2 blocks or so. It would take about 5 minutes to walk the entire area.
