As we all know, this year, the town of Eastchester is celebrating 350 years of existence – more years than America has, itself! It's undeniably amazing to think that our humble, quiet little town has been there through hundreds of years of unforgettable history, from the Salem Witch Trials to the American Revolution to the Gold Rush of 1849.
Plenty of fun events have been scheduled in accordance with the sesquarcentennial anniversary of our town, and though many have so far passed, more are on the way.
June 21 marks the Community Festival and Golf Outing; June 29 is the Trolley Tour (tickets required); September 4 through November 9, Concordia will present an exhibit on the legacy of the town; and, sometime this winter (TBA), Eastchester's first-ever historical book will be released: Out of the Wilderness: The Emergence of Eastchester, Tuckahoe, and Bronxville, 1664-2014.

If you'd like to be more actively involved in this celebration hundreds of years in the making, you can donate, volunteer, or engage your organization in the fray. Happy 350th birthday, Eastchester!
