The Ideal Gift for the History Buff in Your Life


Picturing Our Past: National Register Sites in Westchester County
By Gray Williams (September 2003)

It’s the holiday season, and thanks to Patrick Raftery of the Westchester County Historical Society, we’ve discovered the ideal gift for your family’s history buff. Picturing Our Past, a beautifully illustrated tome of Westchester’s history, contains more than 165 local sites on the National Register of Historic Places. Complete with hundreds of full-color photographs, illustrations, and fascinating text, this book will take you on an epic journey of every city, town, and village in Westchester. From Colonial homes and jaw-dropping mansions to gothic churches and picturesque parks, no stone is left unturned. It may have been published awhile back, but no matter: The rich content and beautiful design of this county-centric love letter are utterly timeless.
