Sandy Ground Historical Society - Staten Island, NY

The Sandy Ground Historical Society Museum and Library has this wonderful story quilt (photo). Sandy Ground, on the south shore side of Staten Island, was founded in the early 19th century by freed black men from New York. The museum offers arts and crafts programs, at times some are focused on African American quilts. During spring and summer, the museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, 1 - 4pm. Call 718-317-5796 for more information. Enjoy!
