Westchester County Archives Adds Pelham Materials to the "Historical Treasures of Westchester County" Section of its Virtual Archives

The Westchester County Archives has added materials for the Town of Pelham, the Village of Pelham and the Village of Pelham Manor to the "Historical Treasures of Westchester County" section of its "Virtual Archives" Web site. The home page for the "Historical Treasures" collection is located at http://www.westchesterarchives.com/HT/home.html.

At the foot of that home page there is a button marked "Communities". Clicking on that button will take you to a map of Westchester County with a list of communities within the county listed in the left column of that page. When you pass your cursor over "Pelham" you will be presented with three choices: Pelham (as in the Town of Pelham), followed by Pelham (the Village) and Pelham Manor (the Village). Clicking on any of these three links will take you to a small collection of material for that municipality. Below is a screen shot showing one of the pages from the Pelham Manor collection.

The page above shows materials related to the Pelham Manor Protective Club including images of every page from the annual report of the Club dated January 1, 1885 and, via a link in the left column, a transcription of the Club's entire report. There is much more interesting material on the pages for the Town of Pelham and the Village of Pelham. All material is from the collections of The Office of The Historian of The Town of Pelham.
