Overview Photos Video Audio


The Garibaldi-Meucci Museum is Staten Island’s home of Italian culture and educational programming for all ages. It also is rumored to be the dwelling place for several ethereal inhabitants.


The house itself was built c. 1840, and became the home of Antonio Meucci, an Italian immigrant inventor who invented the telephone (while Alexander Graham Bell was only 2 years old), the loud speaker, smokeless candles, electric trains, soft drinks, and much, much more. While he lived here on Staten Island, he also gave safe haven to General Giuseppe Garibaldi, the leader and hero of Italian unification. The home was dedicated in Garibaldi’s memory in 1882, and was eventually passed into the care of the Order Sons of Italy in America (OSIA) in 1919. Since then, OSIA has owned the building, and began operating a museum in 1956.

Paranormal Claims

The Staten Island Paranormal Society, the Eastern Paranormal Investigation Center and Haunted Times Magazine have declared the building “haunted.”
