Garibaldi-Meucci House, Staten Island Photos

The Giuseppe Garibaldi and Antonio Meucci House Museum marks where the liberator of Italy lived from 1850 until 1853. Antonio Meucci (1808-89) is a recognized inventor of the telephone although he did not patent or market it properly, and thus history has pushed his recognition aside. Giuseppe Garibaldi (1807-82), landed in the United States after early efforts at Italian liberation failed. Meucci invited Garibaldi to stay with him in his Staten Island home where they worked together at making candles. The House Museum traces the life of these two Italians and has many artifacts from the life of Garibaldi.
