Underhill Crossing Morgan Kraft Harlem Railroad | Westchester Bronxville History

  Bronxville is located in the southern part of Westchester County, NY. Local Indian tribes deeded this region to British colonists in 1666. The earliest settlers are believed to be the Underhill and Morgan families who arrived here in the first half of the 18th century. Both families farmed and tended orchards. The Underhills also established the first local factory. Manufacturing was part of the Bronxville scene for almost two centuries, until 1922 when the last factory, the Kraft leather tannery, vanished in a spectacular blaze. It was almost a century after the arrival of the Underhills and Morgans before the next modest influx of settlers would make their mark. Alexander Masterton, a prosperous stonecutter from Scotland, was lured by quarries of fine white marble that were discovered in nearby Tuckahoe in 1822.

The students at Tuckahoe Middle School are gifted with an education which empowers them to think independently, speak and write with clarity, foster good decision-making, and continue to create a school-family-community centered value system which celebrates the differences among one another.

Tuckahoe High School In 2012 we added four new AP courses to our offerings: government, chemistry, psychology, and art. We also have a new debate club and are bringing back the THS newspaper, The Tiger's Roar. Our strong academic emphasis is only one aspect of our school which helps students develop socially and emotionally as they prepare for college and career opportunities. Our experienced staff takes advantage of our small size and works to counsel and motivate each student toward individual success. As a result, we experienced a dramatic increase in regents mastery in 2011-12. THS is a learning community that both holds students to high expectations and allows for individualized growth and development.

Despite our small size, THS still offers a variety of AP courses and electives that provide our students a wide range of classes. As a result, THS students are annually admitted to top colleges and compete among Westchester County's best academically, in the arts, and in athletics. In addition to our wonderful sports program, there are many extra curricular clubs and activities that appeal to a wide variety of student interests.

Bronxville
Westchester County
Hudson Valley

Bronxville is located in the southern part of Westchester County, New York; with Yonkers to the west, Eastchester to the east, and Mount Vernon to the south of Bronxville.

History of Bronxville
Local Indian tribes deeded this region to British colonists in 1666. The earliest settlers are believed to be the Underhill and Morgan families who arrived here in the first half of the 18th century. Both families farmed and tended orchards. The Underhills also established the first local factory. Manufacturing was part of the Bronxville scene for almost two centuries, until 1922 when the last factory, the Kraft leather tannery, vanished in a spectacular blaze. It was almost a century after the arrival of the Underhills and Morgans before the next modest influx of settlers would make their mark. Alexander Masterton, a prosperous stonecutter from Scotland, was lured by quarries of fine white marble that were discovered in nearby Tuckahoe in 1822.

In 1844 the Harlem Railroad reached Underhill’s Crossing on its way to White Plains. The 1850's was a time of change in the Village. Underhill’s Crossing changed its name to Bronxville, as the Underhills sold off most of their remaining land. The first commuters arrived in the 1850's, including the DeWitt brothers, several of whom practiced law in the Wall Street area.
