This street scene is looking west (towards Dobbs Ferry) from the main intersection of Ardsley (Ashford Ave and Saw Mill River Rd). The photo was taken circa 1904. The building on the right is the Barnett Building that housed the Municipal Offices, court and fire company. *Note the fire bell tower.

As many times as I have browsed the Ardsley Pictures of the Past book by Patricia B. Arone and Fred N. Arone, I have missed this very reassuring advertisement for the Chauncey Fire Brigade. I’m so glad they specialized in putting out fires while you wait!

I thought posting this images was a good place to start as we are all somewhat inconvenienced at this time with the construction work being done on the Ashford Avenue Bridge. However, consider what the family of this house went through when their house had to be moved during the construction of the Thruway. The house stood on Nepperhan Street and was moved to South Field Avenue.

Welcome to the Ardsley Historical Society. We will, over time, post interesting history, facts and images of our village, past and present. Please check back regularly, and/or befriend us for updates. Thank you!
