Our Mission

Inspired by the highly successful Bronxville Centennial Celebration in 1998, the Conservancy was founded to record and preserve Bronxville’s history and life in the village today.

The Conservancy furthers its mission through the presentation of programs, publications, lectures and special events that foster an awareness of the Village’s architectural, artistic and cultural heritage and lends its support for projects designed to strengthen and preserve those legacies. It also encourages and advances the work of the Village Historian.

Funded by annual membership dues and the yield from a generous endowment by the Frieda Riggs family, the Conservancy’s projects and activities include:

•  Annual Brendan Gill Lecture featuring prominent speakers
•  Annual membership meeting and reception
•  Lectures on Bronxville history
•  Trips to historic sites
•  House tours of local residences
•  The highly acclaimed Bronxville Journal
•  Semi-annual newsletter, The Chronicle
•  Historic walking tours for adults and children
•  Programs of historical interest co-sponsored with local institutions
•  Acquisition of works of art from Bronxville’s heyday as an art colony for display in public places
•  Support of the work of the Village Historian
•  Projects designed to strengthen and preservethe village’s architectural, artistic and cultural heritage.
