Lewisboro: A Combination Of Old And New

Lewisboro: A Combination Of Old And New

June 20, 2022

Lewisboro is a town named after early settler John Lewis, and it is located in Westchester County and is a suburb of New York City. Its roots date back to 1747 when it was first acquired from natives and was originally known as Salem before changing its moniker in 1806. The area teems with Revolutionary War history and has sites travelers can visit, such as Sarah Bishop’s Cave, a dwelling place of a woman who lived life as a hermit after harsh dealings with British soldiers.

A number of older homes still dot the landscaped, renovated for modern living, and families can enjoy outdoor recreation, such as fishing for anglers and other activities on the region’s numerous lakes and streams. Also known for its foodies, Lewisboro offers fresh produce markets and bakeries for those with adventurous palates.

Commuters can reach Grand Central Station within 70 minutes via Katonah with its plethora of jobs. Ridgefield, Connecticut is just a short drive from Lewisboro and has a large commercial area with plenty of shopping. For outdoor enthusiasts, Ward Pound Ridge Reservations provides ample opportunity for hiking and more with its 4,700 acres.
