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 and the Westchester County Historical Society. 

Scarsdale Inquirer Digitization

We funded a project with the Scarsdale Public Library to digitize more than 50 years of the Scarsdale Inquirer—a vital resource for anyone researching local history or genealogy.
