The Ardsley Historical Society, founded in 1982, is chartered by the Board of Regents of the State of New York. Its primary function is to collect and preserve all types of materials relevant to the history of Ardsley and the Ardsley School District. In addition, as an educational institution, the Society strives to expand its collection and to make it accessible to the public for research.

A generous way to show your support of the Ardsley Historical Society is to become a member. We have several individuals who have shown their support by making a yearly pledge to the Society, allowing us to continue our mission of collecting, preserving and presenting Ardsley history. If you would like to receive more information about becoming an Ardsley Society Member, please contact us at 914.393.3222, or download the membership and pledge form. Our members receive our newsletter three times a year filled with Ardsley reminiscences, as well as our calendar. So join or renew your membership for the coming year. We welcome you and appreciate your sponsorship.
