The Westchester County records exhibited here are windows to the past that document Westchester's 300 years of extraordinary progress. The documents come from the offices of municipal clerks, historical societies and the special collections of public libraries – offering both public and private records. This site is designed to represent every city, town and village in the county and to speak to the history of each of its 45 communities. To locate records relating to a particular community, click on the municipality’s name from the drop-down list to the left or use the Place Names Index.
Additionally, representative samples are presented from the collections of the Westchester County Archives [WCA] and the Westchester County Historical Society [WCHS], the two institutions sponsoring this website.
