A Stroll Down Town: Then and Now
Tuesday February 7, 2012 - Monday January 7, 2013
As you enter the exhibit, pretend you are walking down King Street in Chappaqua from the top of the hill to the village near the railroad. As you stroll, compare the then and now through photos, artifacts and written explanations which will guide you along the way. Find where the first supermarket was located, what goods R.S. Hafiland’s Lumber Yard sold, where the Chappaqua Hotel was. Then check out what the replacements are and how they reflect the changing needs of Chappaqua’s population. You may come upon surprises such as the fact that before the 1930 building of the railroad bridge, King Street crossed the tracks with businesses existing on the far side of the tracks.
