Support for the Bronxville History Center

The Conservancy has provided a variety of support to the Bronxville History Center and the work of the village historian. Among these were funds to equip the History Center, located in the lower levels of the Bronxville Public Library, with a state-0f-the-art computer and copier/printer/fax/scanner, with wireless Internet connections. In addition, the Conservancy helped fund the digitization of more than a century of historic Bronxville-area newspapers that are being posted online at HUDSON RIVER VALLEY HERITAGE HISTORICAL NEWSPAPERS. The Conservancy also underwrote the creation of two photograph collections of modern Bronxville: a beautiful portfolio of professional color photographs of modern Bronxville, in print and digital form, by Judith Watts Wilson, and a series of black and white streetscape images by photographer Fielding Bowman Other gifts include the reframing of a painting for the turn-of-the-20th century artist Anna Winegar.
