WHAT A GRAND TIME WAS HAD BY ALL!!
Thank you to all the
Donors, Advertisers and Attendees for making this event so special!
The Bronxville Historical Conservancy was founded in 1998 to further an understanding and appreciation of the history and current life of the village and to preserve its architectural, artistic, and cultural heritage. For years, those with an interest in local history had lamented the lack of a historical society, especially as they observed works of village artists and Masterton homestead treasures leaving Bronxville while architectural landmarks such as the Hotel Gramatan were demolished. Responding to the enormous interest and participation in the 1998 celebration of the village centennial, 100 families replied to a community request for founders of a historical society and the centennial’s non-profit corporation became the Conservancy. With a generous bequest from Frieda Riggs, the Conservancy created an endowment that has enabled the ongoing efforts of its dedicated members to pursue and fulfill its worthy mission and goals.
