Historic Sites

  • Several sites in Wykagyl commemorate the life of Thomas Paine, American pamphleteer and Revolutionary War hero, including his home, his burial site, and a museum. Paine's home, the Thomas Paine Cottage, was built in 1793 after a fire destroyed the previous home. The cottage was moved to its current location, which is on land that was part of the 300-acre (1.2 km2) farm owned by Paine. The house, which is a National Historic Landmark, is currently operated as a museum. The Thomas Paine Memorial Building, which houses the library and museum collection of the Thomas Paine National Historical Association, was built in 1925.
  • The Brewster Schoolhouse - one of the oldest structural relics in Westchester County, dates back to the 18th century, and is a mere 15 feet (4.6 m) by 20 feet (6.1 m) in dimensions.
  • Norman Rockwell's studio - home and studio where the artist created much of his iconic Saturday Evening Post work
  • St. John's Wilmot Church - a historic Episcopal parish located in the northern end of the City at the intersection of North Avenue and Wilmot Road, formerly referred to as "Cooper's Corner."

Famous quotes containing the word historic:

    If there is any period one would desire to be born in, is it not the age of Revolution; when the old and the new stand side by side, and admit of being compared; when the energies of all men are searched by fear and by hope; when the historic glories of the old can be compensated by the rich possibilities of the new era?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
