Town of North Salem, including the hamlets of Purdys, North Salem, Croton Falls, and Salem Center
The Town of North Salem includes the hamlets of Purdys, North Salem, Croton Falls, and Salem Center. North Salem is home to prominent farms and estates, handsomely restored historic residences, breathtaking contemporary homes designed to capture the beauty of their surroundings, and modest homes of all types.
Horses are, by far, the Town's foremost attraction and provide a livelihood for many of the residents. There are many renowned stables located here, along with miles upon miles of bridle trails amid the magnificent countryside. Land conservation efforts are high priority, preserving open spaces such as the 1,000-acre Mountain Lakes Park and the serenity of the Titicus Reservoir where fishing is allowed only by special permit.Cultural attractions in North Salem include the Hammond Museum with its Japanese Stroll Garden, plays and performances at the Schoolhouse Theatre, and the North Salem Vineyards.
While bucolic North Salem is considered to be the last of the "wide open spaces" in Westchester County, it is still convenient to major commuting routes via car, air, and rail, with 2 Metro North stations offering service to mid-town. Retail business is not the Town's top priority, but a 10-15 minute trip in any direction will provide access to all the merchants you need. The attraction to North Salem is simple: it offers a sophisticated rural atmosphere with a pastoral serenity that is unique.
