Events 2019

Save the Dates:

Join us at the White Elephant, 81 Keeler Lane:  Sunday, January 27, 2019, 1:00 to 3:00pm - Chili lunch, on us!  Enjoy a cup of chili and a glass of wine or punch and see who wins the Horse-drawn Carriage Ride in North Salem.  

We will be selling raffle tickets right up to the finish with the drawing at 3:00pm.  Enjoy a cup of homemade chili and see our displays about Winter over the decades.  The blizzard of 1888 was one of the biggest and we have a few photos.  Ice fishing was and still  is popular on Peach Lake and the Titicus.  But in earlier times Peach Lake was one of the sources of ice for the home.  Learn how they cut, delivered and stored the ice.  And so much more.
If the weather is agreeable, we'll have the bonfire going.  This one is on us!

Raffle Tickets are still available.  Horse-drawn carriage ride for four.  $25 per ticket or 5 for $100.  Email us at if you need tickets.  If you have them, please send to P O Box 31, North Salem, NY 10560.

School Yearbook Collection:  Between the school, library, town historian and a few private collections we have managed to assemble a copy of every school yearbook, see link below.
Purdys Central High:  
Please visit their website compliments of Pier "Peter" V. Guidi, Class of '62:
It is chock-ful of wonderful memorabilia on the classes that attended Purdys Central High.  On that site you will see their film, One More Day - North Salem Remembers, by Bob Field, writer and editor, Class of ‘63.  Bob interviewed many graduates and did filming recently in town.
