Historic Home to be Razed

The Journal News has an interesting story about one of the oldest houses in the area, slated for demolition.
A year after George Washington became the country’s first president, John Gedney built a house at what is now at Boston Post Road and North Barry Avenue in Mamaroneck.
Since 1790, the home has stood there, evolving over the centuries from farmhouse to schoolhouse to office building, acquiring porches and losing original features along the way.
But a long past is no guarantee of a long future.
