CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. – The New Castle Historical Society recently announced its tenth “Castles of New Castle” hour tour will be held on Tuesday, May 21 and will feature a variety of homes that vary in size, location, style and when they were built.
“We are very excited about this year’s houses,” said Victoria Gutfreund, event co-chair.
Co-chair Tory Miller said, “The five homes we’ve selected tell an abundant and varied story about the history and residents of New Castle from the early 1800s to the present.”
Miller added that the event is always highly anticipated as, “Local residents have always come out to support the event and see these wonderful, eclectic homes – and we anticipate great attendance this year as well."
This year’s tour will showcase a country house that was built in 1918 for publisher George Doran of Doubleday, Doran, which is situated on a hill in the western corner of New Castle, it has spectacular views of the Hudson River and the Tappan Zee Bridge. It will also feature a historic Victorian in-town residence known as “One of the Painted Ladies.”
