We invite you to use this website to discover the rich heritage of the Village of Dobbs Ferry, New York. The mission of our Historical Society is to keep account of village history and to make that history live through articles and books that we write, photographs and maps that we preserve and display, speakers programs and public events.  Check out our various pages for information about these activities.  Join the Society and take part in the various programs we sponsor.  And use the “Contact Us” page to send us information about Dobbs Ferry history that we have not yet discovered!   Join us in this ever-interesting task.



Family Workshop – Young Designers Take Over Mead House
The Historical Society and ArchForKids (www.archforkids.com) are teaming up to present a fun “hands on, minds on” workshop for families. Dobbs Ferry has many notable historical buildings, from the Keeper’s House on the Old Croton Aqueduct to Mead House, the home of the Historical Society. Working from photographs, families will make a 3D model of the building they select. Along the way, participants will learn about architectural styles and elements – as well as the history of the village.
Recommended for ages 5 and up; children must be accompanied by an
adult. Saturday, June 1 from 1-2:30pm. Children $5 and Adults $10. For
