Since its launch a few years ago, the Heritage program has recognized twenty-two local properties for their architectural significance or for their important role in New Rochelle’s history. A handsome plaque is affixed to each site, helping to raise public awareness about our community’s past and to preserve architectural treasures for our future.
Nominations are being accepted now through January 11 for the next round of New Rochelle Heritage awards in the following categories:
- Residences older than 50 years that are significant to New Rochelle’s history

- Landscape or landscape feature (e.g. cemeteries, stone walls, signs; excepting gardens)
All selections are made by a distinguished panel of experts, led by New Rochelle Historian Barbara Davis.
