Westchester County Facts - Park Sterling Realty

Westchester County has a long and exciting history dating back to pre-colonial times. Whether you're in town searching for Mahopac homes for sale or helping your family move into Eastchester homes for sale, our REALTORS® invite all visitors and future residents of Westchester County to learn more about the area. Here are eight fun facts about Westchester we bet that you didn't know!

  1. Westchester County's Native American History is Everywhere
    When browsing Bronxville homes for sale, you may spot a stone wall on Pondfield Road that showcases a plaque dedicating the transference of the Eastchester land from the Mohican Indians to the immigrants from Europe. If you're browsing White Plains homes for sale, you may note that this area was called Quarropas by the Native Americans which means "white marshes," assumedly because of the heavy mists or white balsam groves that were common in the area. You can learn more about our Native American history at the Ossining Historical Society Museum.

    Home to the famed Rockefeller family for four generations, Kykuit, the Rockefeller Estate is a truly stunning historic landmark located in Westchester County. Originally home to oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller, this property sets a standard for luxury. The art collections alone are enough to rival many museums, and the outdoor gardens still rank as some of the most stunning that New York has to offer.
