The original portion of the Billiou-Stillwell-Perine House was built by Captain Thomas Stillwell, a prominent resident of Staten Island. The original one-and-one-half-story farmhouse, built of rough-cut fieldstone, is distinguished by its steep, medieval style roof and an immense Dutch fireplaces with a huge chimney head supported by two wooden posts. The section added in 1700 is notable for its fine paneled fireplace, transitional type panel, and feather-edge partition. Later stone and frame additions of the same height were built about 1750, 1790, and 1830.

“I don’t know what the City would be without HDC. [They] testified before LPC time after time and helped us focus on the right issues. We would not be an historic district without HDC! ”

“Use HDC as a resource because they know what they are doing and can offer advice on how to go about creating a district from every front: architectural, political, LPC, and the media. I had floundered prior to my involvement with this invaluable organization.”

“HDC provided guidance and shared information during that process—we knew which Council members were going one way or another and we changed a few minds. I don’t think NoHo would have had as cohesive a district had it not been for HDC’s aid.”

“I remember Richard saying at a meeting, we have someone here from HDC, Nadezhda Williams, Director of Preservation and Research, to help us. She said to us, ‘You are not the only ones going through this.’ HDC included us in an enormous community”
