in the Victorian Era

The exhibit includes Yonkers street scapes, Train Stations, and the Mansions of North Broadway, Warburton Avenue and Park Hill. It also includes one of the only known images of the Hendrick Hudson Hotel, designed by architect Bruce Price who also designed the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec. Dubbed “fireproof”, the Hendrick Hudson Hotel burnt to the ground just before it opened in 1901.
Local historian Bob Piwinski* will be on site to talk about this exhibition and answer questions. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
