The Huguenot Children’s Library – New Rochelle 10804

The New Rochelle Children's LibraryI love history, and perhaps that is one of the reasons I moved to New Rochelle! There is always something interesting to learn, such as the  Mahlstedt House located at 794 North Avenue.

This  home (French Second Empire-style building), was perhaps the first brick home to have been built in New Rochelle in 1869,  and the Mahlstedt family had a thriving ice making business  until freezers were invented. The family then donated 40 acres to the city in 1922 for  a park and new high school. The lake became Twin Lakes (one lake was actually man-made) and a causeway separated the two. The twin lakes are located in front of our high school, and the small  house became the now  Huguenot Branch ( Huguenot Children’s Library, a branch of the New Rochelle library).The New Rochelle Children's Library
