Welcome to the E-350 website! Here you will find a complete calendar of Events, information on Community Programs, a section devoted to Our History and its records, an outline of the K-12 Educational Programs … and even a page where you can share your special Residents’ Memories!
Eastchester 350th Anniversary Inc., the not-for-profit formed to organize the 350th anniversary celebration of the Town of Eastchester including the Villages of Tuckahoe and Bronxville, will honor the rich history of this important and diverse community by documenting and celebrating that history. The organization aspires to make a lasting contribution to the rich cultural legacy of the Town of Eastchester and the Villages of Tuckahoe and Bronxville.
Very importantly, all three public school districts will be offering K-12 Programs for our students to pursue. Each school will adopt its own approach, plus some opportunities will be open across district lines. Schoolchildren at the private and parochial schools will be invited to participate as well.
A quick look at the Events and Community Programs pages of this website will be your guide to the many events and activities planned in 2014 for residents of all ages. Among these are a first-time ever One Book/One Community Read Program sponsored by the three public libraries and Concordia College, festive celebrations centering around June 24, 2014, the official birthday, trolley tours and a significant exhibit in Concordia’s OSilas Gallery focusing on the town’s historic “Legacies and Landmarks: Eastchester, Tuckahoe and Bronxville at 350.” It will recall the contributions of some of our outstanding past residents and the physical presence today of some of the town’s pre-1890 buildings and other structures. Later in the year, a handsome volume on Eastchester’s history, entitled Out of the Wilderness: The Emergence of Eastchester, Tuckahoe, and Bronxville, 1664 -2014, will be published showcasing town topics not previously researched or, perhaps, never known and now newly discovered.
Contact us with your organization’s plans for involvement and/or your desire to be a volunteer. Our History will reveal documents and researched texts related to the town’s rich past. But, there is room, too, for your own family’s story, your home’s history or business remembrances in the Residents’ Memories section.
