Boy Scout Troop 2
Operating out of Immanuel Union Church, located at 693 Jewett Avenue, this Boy Scout Troop is the oldest Boy Scout Troop on Staten Island, and is one of the oldest troops in the country.
The troop was founded in 1909 when Westerleigh resident returned from a trip to England where he met with Boy Scout’s founder Lord Baden Powell.
Originally, the troop met in a Westerleigh home on what is now Markham Place and was chartered in 1912 as Troop 114. A few years later, the Troop was re-designated as Troop 2 when a Staten Island Council of the Boy Scouts of America was formed.
Meetings for Troop 2 were held at Immanuel Union Church, which was then known as Deems Chapel. The Troop continues to meet there weekly.
