Discover the History of Pelham Manor, NY

The personal injury lawyers in Pelham Manor, NY, at Banville Law, would like to offer this deeper look into the community's past.

Pelham Manor

This wealthy village is situated in the southern region of Westchester County in the state of New York. It helps to form the town of Pelham along with Pelham Manor. Neighboring communities include New Rochelle, South Side, The Valley, and Eastchester.


Thomas Pell purchased the greater area in 1654 from the Siwanoy Indians. He named his estate after his former tutor, Pelham Burton.

The area became part of Westchester County in 1788. In 1891, the village was officially incorporated.

The village shares many of its services with its neighbors, such as its public schools and recreational activities. There is an ongoing movement to continue this consolidation in order to reduce taxes. However, many residents are opposed to this consolidation.

The neighborhood is home to many historical landmarks. Some of these include:

Bolton Priory - This historic home was built for Reverend Robert Bolton in 1838. It overlooks Pelham Bay and initially stood on a large wooded track to land. However, it now just contains 3.7 acres.
