BIRTHDAY LEGEND! #RichardRodgers (1902 - 1979) Without question had one of the most extensive outputs of any composer of his era. Having written over 900 songs with both Oscar Hammerstein II and Lorenz Hart, many of which have become the fabric of our lives. Here I am waaaaay back in 1986 singing one of my favorites of his with lyrics by Larry Hart, "Manhattan." What is your all time favorite Rodgers song???

What's New on Our Website. We have added two new pages to our website. The first page is an archive of the Roost which
will eventually include all back issues. These back issues contain a wealth of information and knowledge about Irvington and its people, past and present. The articles in these issues will, in time, be searchable. Access to these archives are through the main navigation bar on the Home Page via The Roost, then click on Past and Archives. These archives are in .pdf format. The second new page is a pictorial of Irvington Unfolds: A Village History in Maps, our new exhibit at the McVickar House. We hope that after viewing this page, you will want to visit in person. We can assure you, it is not to be missed.

You can access this page on the main menu bar on the Home Page, then click on Activities and Current.

Just a quick post to ask everyone to keep on scouring their basement, garages and attics for any old maps you might know about but have forgotten. We have received many maps for our exhibit in this way. In most cases we copy or photograph them for display. This exhibit is an ongoing exhibit, so we will be adding additional maps as time goes on.

We are really just closed to the public! August is actually one of our busiest times of the year. Our last exhibit: A View from Backstage has been taken down, borrowed items returned, pieces from our collection re boxed and put back into storage. The exhibit space is getting cleaned and ready for our upcoming exhibit: Irvington Unfolds: A Village History in Maps, which will open in September.

Steve is busy blowing up maps to 300% of their original size, then, stitching all the images together to make one digital negative and one photo. Verrrrrrry time consuming and very large images to print but all for a good cause, the new Map Exhibit coming soon to the McVickar House.

Village Administrator Larry Schopfer gave us boxes and boxes of old ledgers, journals, receipts, letters, voting records etc. when they cleaned out the Village vault. Most are from the late 1800’s to the 1950’s what fun it is to go through these pieces of history. Volunteers work every Tuesday inventorying, cleaning, cataloguing and archiving them.
