By Ellen de Saint Phalle, Member, The Bronxville Historical Conservancy

Sep. 27, 2017:  The Bronxville Historical Conservancy ("BHC") is seeking nominations for the 2017 Preservation Award. Established in 2015, this award recognizes individuals, organizations, and businesses that have strengthened the fabric of the Bronxville community through exceptional commitment to preserving an understanding of its rich past and unique character.

Projects eligible for this award must be complete at the time of submission and fall within at least one of seven specific categories: architectural restoration, conservation of architectural elements, renovations and additions, garden and landscape design, craftsmanship and fine arts, preservation of the historical record, and stewardship and advocacy. Self-nominations are welcome. The deadline for submissions is November 1, 2017.

"We are eager to review submissions again this year," said BHC co-chair Erin Saluti. "The quality of projects the committee is fortunate enough to review demonstrates a high level of interest and care in the stewardship of the village. The award is intended to celebrate and foster this spirit." The People's Bank received the inaugural 2015 award for the restoration of its clock, and Houlihan Lawrence received the 2016 award for its restoration of the Prescott Farm Gate Lodge at 4 Valley Road," which houses the company's historic offices.

Nominations for projects must include the name and location of the project and contact information for all project owners, architects, contractors, and craftspersons. Submissions should also include a one- to two-page narrative explaining the history of the project, the category for which the project is being nominated, its historical significance, and how it reflects the unique character of Bronxville. Supporting documents and digital images are strongly encouraged. All should be clearly labeled and mailed to The Bronxville Historical Conservancy, P.O. Box 989, Bronxville, NY 10708, Attention: Chair, Preservation Award Committee.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
