Scarsdale Historical Society Agrees To Sell Property to Local Developer: Cudner-Hyatt House To Be Protected

cudnerhyatthouse4 3The Scarsdale Historical Society has entered into an agreement to sell its property at 937 Post Road, including the Cudner-Hyatt House and the Quaker Meeting House, to a local residential developer. The sale is subject to a Historic Preservation and Conservation Easement, which will ensure the preservation and protection of the Cudner-Hyatt House.

The sale of the property is contingent upon the approval of an application to be filed for a subdivision limited to three lots. The sale is also subject to a number of other contingencies, including approval by the Scarsdale Historical Society members and the approval of the New York State Education Department, the Attorney General’s Office, and the Supreme Court of the State of New York.

“The Scarsdale Historical Society is very pleased to enter into this transaction and is thrilled that the Cudner-Hyatt House will be preserved for future generations. This transaction will enable us to expand our efforts to preserve and disseminate historical information about Scarsdale and Westchester,” said Randy Guggenheimer, Scarsdale Historical Society President.

The Scarsdale Historical Society will continue to maintain and make history easily accessible to the public through grants to digitize, preserve, and catalog primary source material that is part of the Society’s collection and owned by other organizations. The public will then have access to all of this material through the Society’s website (www.scarsdalehistoricalsociety.org) and other digital platforms. The Society will also increase grants to promote, fund and encourage the publication of books and materials regarding the history of Scarsdale and Westchester and to fund and produce documentaries regarding their architectural and cultural history. The Society will continue to hold and promote events to display items from its collection and engage the public to share historical items and primary source material with the community and respond to telephone, email and social media requests regarding Scarsdale’s history.

The Society has produced three films, two of which can be viewed on the Society’s website. The initial screening of our newest film, “A River Returns: A History of the Bronx River” will take place on Sunday, March 24th at 3:00pm at the Little Theater at Scarsdale High School.
