Program Description

Event Details

Bring in your Scarsdale-related family photographs to be digitized, at no charge, in an effort to preserve local history. You will receive your own digital file(s), and the materials will be catalogued, properly credited, and included in the Village archives as a way to preserve the stories and experiences of this community.
Even if you don't have anything to bring in, stop by to see some of the historical artifacts housed at the library, such as: a book of town minutes from the 18th and 19th centuries; Scarsdale High School yearbooks from the 1930s; and maps of Scarsdale from the 19th and early 20th century.
In addition, Seth Kaller, a leading American history dealer and collection-builder and a Scarsdale Historical Society trustee, will display valuable original documents and artifacts, including:  Alexander Hamilton’s Funding Plan Act of Congress signed by Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson; the only copy in private hands of New York’s first printing of the Declaration of Independence; one of Alexander Hamilton’s most revealing love letters to Eliza, written from Dobbs Ferry in 1780; Jesse Owens Congressional Gold medal; Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s law books; and a NY Votes for Women suffrage broadside.
