Dedicated to discovering, preserving and disseminating the rich history of Scarsdale and our neighboring communities.
CREATING A VIRTUAL HISTORICAL SOCIETY
We're taking history out of the archives so we can scan it, curate it and share it online.
Starting with more than 1,300 issues of the Scarsdale Inquirer and historic photographs and maps, we're funding projects with institutions like the Scarsdale Public Library, Westchester County Archives and the New-York Historical Society.
Scarsdale Inquirer Digitization
Scanning Historic Photographs
This summer we're again partnering with the Scarsdale Public Library to digitize historic photographs and postcards.
See some of the photographs they've already scanned on their Fickr page.
We plan to "crowd-source" the transcription of Helen Lorraine Hultz's 1,100+ page handwritten book, Scarsdale Story, which former Village Historian Richard Lederer, Jr. called "the most comprehensive history of Scarsdale ever to be done." Want to help? Sign-up now!
