Manor Club Could Be Added to State's Historic Register

The Manor Club in Pelham Manor is among 21 properties, resources and districts recommended for addition to the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

“Preserving these historic sites helps promote tourism, one of New York’s fastest growing industries, especially upstate,” Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said in a press release. “These sites represent notable parts of New York’s past and I encourage travelers to visit them and learn about our state’s great history.”

The Manor Club, Pelham Manor – built in 1921-1922 to house a women’s social, literary, and philanthropic club, the Tudor Revival-style building became a social and cultural center for the whole community and provided women with leadership and educational opportunities. 

The Manor Club is still a civic, cultural and social club for the women of Pelham and Pelham Manor—the oldest one in Westchester County. Even the site of the clubhouse is rich in history; the first clubhouse was built in 1882.

Also recommended was the South Salem Presbyterian Church Cemetery. The burial yard contains 373 graves, the earliest of which is recorded as 1739, including two veterans of the French & Indian War, 26 local veterans of the American Revolution, and two veterans of the War of 1812.
