Ardsley-on-Hudson
Westchester County
Hudson Valley

Ardsley-on-Hudson is located in the municipality of Irvington in the southwestern part of Westchester County, NY. Irvington borders the Hudson River and is known as one of the charming River Towns of the Hudson Valley.

History of Ardsley-on-Hudson
Starting in the 1850's, Irvington began to attract wealthy NYC residents. Irvington's beautiful views of the Hudson and its rural setting enticed many people to build large summer residences. The Village of Irvington was incorporated April 16, 1872. The territory of the village was part of the Bissightick track of the Van der Donck grant purchased by Frederick Phillipse in 1682. In 1817, Justice Dearman bought half of William Dutcher's farm and lived there until 1848 when it was sold to Gustavo F. Sanchi. In the same year, it was sold to John Jay, grandson of Justice John Jay, who arranged for it to be laid out in lots as the Village of Dearman. The lots were sold at public auction in New York City in 1850; the village of "Dearman" was formed. In 1854, "Dearman," by popular vote, changed its name to "Irvington," honoring its beloved citizen, Washington Irvington, author of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle." Works by Louis Comfort Tiffany, who also lived here, can be seen in the town hall, library and the Irvington Presbyterian Church.
