Hastings-on-Hudson: Best Place for History Lovers

Riverview Manor History

"The Palisades From River View Manor" Postcard, circa 1909?

According to the latest issue of Westchester Magazine, featuring this years top choices for the best places to live in Westchester, Hastings-on-Hudson was voted “The Best Place For History Lovers.”
One reason for this distinction is that several years ago in 2005, the Hastings-on-Hudson Historical Society inaugurated its Museum In The Streets. This walking tour of the village starts at Boulanger Plaza, in the center of the village and helps to give a sense of place to 34 different locations, village wide. Each spot is marked with a plaque consisting of historical pictures and a brief outline of what happened there, in Hastings-on-Hudson’s historic past. These descriptions are printed in both English and Spanish. In total, there are more than 80 photos in various spots in the village. Among some of the more well known village landmarks depicted via this unique museum are the Croton Aqueduct and the Hastings-on-Hudson waterfront with the old Anaconda Wire Company. You will also find lesser known sites such as the home of Frank Morgan, the actor who portrayed The Wizard, in The Wizard Of Oz, the Revolutionary War era Peter Post Tavern and the home of Admiral David Farragut, who coined the phrase “Damn the torpedoes…..”
