Detail of Pelham From Rare Map Published in 1851

There is an exceedingly rare map of Westchester County that shows a detailed view of Pelham and surrounding areas that was published in 1851. The citation for the map is: Sidney & Neff, Map of Westchester County N.Y. from Actual Surveys by Sidney & Neff (White Plains, NY: Newell S. Brown 1851). A detail from the map showing the Pelham area appears immediately below.

An interesting feature of the map is that it clearly shows the old Split Rock Road extending from today's Shore Road to today's Boston Post Road. There is shown, near the northern end of Split Rock Road, the little school house that served the area.
