Rare Book from 1905: "The Story of Richmond Hill," was written in 1905 by Kate Matson Post (1855-1936) for the benefit of the building fund of the 20th Century Club. Her father Rev. William Agur Matson (1819-1904) was the third rector of the Church of the Resurrection on 118th St. from 1877-1887, when he retired. Rev. Matson continued to live in Richmond Hill, on Division Ave. (now 84th Ave. near 115th St.) until his death in 1904. Kate's sister Frances Clark Matson took the photographs and her daughter Estelle Alma Post drew the flowers on the cover. Click here for Book
