The Village of Pelham Manor Board of Trustees took a step toward turning Four Corners into a historic district, voting Nov. 13 to apply to put the area around the intersection of Boston Post Road and Pelhamdale Avenue on the National Register of Historic Places and the New York State Register of Historic Places.

“The intersection of Boston Post Road with Pelhamdale Avenue known as ‘Four Corners’ is, and has historically been, the epicenter of community life and activity” in the village, said the board’s resolution. The majority of property owners in the area support the move, it said.

Village Manager Lindsey Luft and Town Historian Arthur Scinta will work on the applications for the listings.

Scinta approached the village about a year ago, said Mayor Jennifer Monachino Lapey. “We have been looking for several years about how we can recognize some of the beauty in our little village square known as Four Corners.”

The area includes the gothic revival Huguenot Memorial Church, a historic police booth and the Tudor revival shopping center, in which Joseph Kennedy was an early investor. 

“To our way of thinking, a win-win,” said Monachino Lapey. “The rich history allows us to highlight the outstanding history and some of the nuanced architecture at Four Corners.”
