Announcing the Pelham History Guild -- First Newsletter Released

Despite its rich history, Pelham remains the only community within lower Westchester County and the Bronx that does not have its own Historical Society. Among the many historical societies supported by communities that surround Pelham are: the Bronxville Historical Conservancy, the Eastchester Historical Society, the Larchmont Historical Society, the Mamaroneck Historical Society, the Huguenot New Rochelle Historical Association, the Landmark and Historical Society of Mount Vernon, the City Island Historical Society, the Bronx Historical Society, the East Bronx History Forum and the Yonkers Historical Society.

To fill this void, Pelham Preservation Society, Ltd. (a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization also known as the Pelham Preservation & Garden Society) has created “The Pelham History Guild”, a committee of the Society devoted to the celebration of the rich history of Pelham and surrounding areas.

Those who wish to join The Pelham History Guild may do so by completing and submitting a Pelham Preservation Society membership application indicating their interest in The Pelham History Guild together with annual membership dues of $35.

The purpose of The Pelham History Guild will be to celebrate Pelham history through entertaining and informative means. Quarterly gatherings will be social, but will include presentations for wide-ranging audiences including those with a passing curiosity about the history of Pelham, those with an intense interest in the history of Pelham and those who simply want to know more about their community and its traditions. Those who join The Pelham History Guild in 2007 will be deemed “Charter Members”. Members will receive an extensive quarterly newsletter. To join, please complete and return the application below with your check for $35 made payable to “Pelham Preservation Society, Ltd.”
