Clifton Queen Anne Staten Island

Prominently located on Bay Street in Clifton, Staten Island, St. John’s Protestant Episcopal Church Rectory is an excellent example of an early free-standing Queen Anne style residence. The rectory, located to the south of the church, was built for the Reverend Eccleston from 1881-1882 by the builder John W. Winmill. The picturesque qualities of the Queen Anne style and the house’s granite base, an unusual feature among Staten Island’s Queen Anne style houses, complement St. John’s Protestant Episcopal Church, built from 1869-1871.

“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”
