GREENVILLE COMMUNITY CHURCH CELEBRATING 175 YEARS...
The Greenville Community Church, located on Ardsley Road in the Edgemont section of town will celebrate the beginning of their 175th anniversary this Sunday, November 6 with a service at 10 AM. The beginning of the church dates back to 1840 when a handful of Dutch farmers had a vision of a place of worship for the community. They were “long on faith and sacrifice, short on worldly goods.” A local tavern owner by the name of Gilbert Underhill offered them his “tap room” as a place for them to worship. Mr. Underhill’s interest in this group and his generosity continued to grow. In March of 1842 he deeded them enough property for a church building along with an adjacent cemetery. The small group contracted to build a church the first church to be built in Scarsdale, New York. On November 9, 1842, this small group of Christians dedicated a little white clapboard church, and they were formally recognized as a congregation of the by our denomination.
Today’s membership draws individuals from 19 different communities in Westchester County;
Greenburgh/White Plains branch of the NAACP is celebrating their 80th year tonight at Mt. Hope AME Zion Church, 65 Lake Street, White Plains from 6 to 9 PM. Congratulations
