Pelham, NY in Westchester County, was founded in 1654 when Thomas Pell signed a treaty with the Siwanoy Indians and purchased more than 9000 acres that extended from parts of the Bronx north to Mamaroneck. Formed in 1788, the Town of Pelham is the oldest and smallest in Westchester County. It today consists of a single unified school district and two villages, Pelham and Pelham Manor, with a combined population of 12,000 -- a number that has not changed since 1940. Developed as a suburb beginning in the late 1800s, Pelham’s neighborhoods consist of various historic architectural styles ranging from Shingle Style Victorians to Tudor Revival. Pelham’s historic train station is situated in the center of many of these neighborhoods and offers an easy 29-minute commute to Grand Central Station.

Educational Facilities
Pelham’s educational facilities are also centrally located, avoiding the need for busing. Pelham’s award winning schools consist of four neighborhood elementary schools serving grades K-5, a new middle school for grades 6-8 and the adjoining Pelham Memorial High School (which graduates an average of 140 students per year). The total district-wide enrollment is about 2,000 students. The Pelham Educational Foundation, PTA organizations and a community-wide commitment further contribute to the quality of Pelham’s schools. Local private pre-schools include Huguenot Nursery School, Junior Wonders, Montessori School, Mount Tom Day School and the Pelham Children’s Center.

Recreational Facilities
Pelham offers more than 70 recreational facilities and programs for every age group, including swimming, tennis, football, hockey, basketball & Little League. There are many supervised playground activities, scouting groups and a summer day camp. An active Senior Citizen Group meets weekly. The Richard Daronco Town House serves as a community center. Private facilities are located at the Pelham Country Club and Travers Island, the outdoor facility of the New York Athletic Club on Long Island Sound.

Houses of Worship
In addition to religious services, Pelham’s houses of worship also offer a range of educational, musical and recreational programs sponsored by Christ the Redeemer Episcopal Church, Community Church of the Pelhams, Huguenot Presbyterian Church, Our Lady of Perpetual Help and St. Catharine’s Roman Catholic Churches and the Pelham Jewish Center.
