(914) 825-8112

The Village Historian is responsible for preserving the community's history through historic preservation, genealogy, urban history, ethnic studies and interest in local government records of all kinds. The historian promotes the establishment and improvement of programs of enduring historic value to the community and encourages the collection and preservation of non-governmental historic records to add to the knowledge and appreciation of the history of the Village.

To help bring information to the community, the historian maintains an archival records center, writes research papers and speaks to school children and other groups.
