Bronxville Historical Conservancy to Celebrate Mary Huber at Bronxville Library Sunday, June 10 PDF Print Email


By Nancy Vittorini, Member, Executive Committee of the Board of Directors, The Bronxville Historical Conservancy

May 30, 2018:  The Bronxville Historical Conservancy continues its twentieth-anniversary celebration with a tribute to former village historian Mary Means Huber on Sunday, June 10, from 2:00 to 3:30 pm at the Bronxville Public Library.

Huber lived in the Bronxville community for almost 60 years until recently moving to Massachusetts. She was Bronxville village historian from 1987 to 1999. As historian, Huber worked on collecting and preserving documents related to Bronxville's history and making this history accessible and meaningful to Bronxville's residents and to others interested in history. She was a founding member and worked closely with The Bronxville Historical Conservancy after its inception in 1998.

Huber and Conservancy co-founder Marilynn Wood Hill co-authored Around Bronxville from The Images of America Series published by Arcadia Press in 1997. Huber also was the planning consultant and contributed to Building A Suburban Village, published in 1998, Bronxville's centennial year.

A graduate of Wheaton College, Huber earned a master of arts degree from the University of Delaware and was a fellow in the Henry Francis DuPont Winterthur Program. Her field is historic preservation and art history, and she was co-curator of the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum, an 1840s Greek Revival house with period rooms, near Pelham Bay Park.

Huber and her late husband, Charles Clark Huber, raised their three children in Bronxville, all graduates of The Bronxville School.

In 1997, The Bronxville Rotary Club recognized Huber for her more than 30 years of outstanding service to the community. On June 10, The Bronxville Historical Conservancy will celebrate Huber with a reception and special presentation. The program is a tribute to Huber's scholarship and passion for history and will also recognize her generosity in contributing three paintings to The Bronxville Historical Conservancy's remarkable art collection.

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.
