New Rochelle was founded by the Huguenots over 300 years ago in their pursuit of religious freedom from France. New Rochelle is so proud of its history. SO many facts, so many details. Bastille Day, of course was on July 14th, 1790 – a different part of history but since today is July 14th, it is a good reason to listen one of the songs from my favorite musical “Les Miserables!”
Did you know that many towns and villages in Westchester also have Historical Societies? Eastchester, Dobbs Ferry, Hastings, etc.
Become involved, join and be a part of history also!
New Rochelle is great!
