Program Celebrates New Rochelle’s Historic Structures

Read about the 2010 Heritage Award Winners.

The New Rochelle Heritage program honors sites and structures that contribute to our community’s history and culture. Seven properties were chosen this year for recognition. You can learn much more about the winners here.

In the words of City Historian Barbara Davis: “this year’s Heritage Awards represent three eras in New Rochelle nearly 325 year history: the early settlement by the French Huguenots; the community’s growth as a premier American suburb at the turn of the 20th century, and the ‘boom years’ of the 1920’s. The judges were particularly impressed with the restoration work that has been completed on several of the properties to preserve this significant history. We should all be grateful to the owners for their diligence in protecting New Rochelle’s past for the future.”

Applications for next year’s Heritage Awards will be accepted starting this September.
