Pelham, the oldest town in Westchester county, was acquired by Thomas Pell from the Siwanoy Indians and named after his tutor—Pelham Burton. Since its formation, the town of Pelham has been subdivided into two distinct villages. The village of Pelham and the Village of Pelham Manor.
Each village has its own governing board and has a variety of properties ranging from single-family through multi-family residential homes and commercial operations. The Village of Pelham is comprised of many boutiques, shopping areas and restaurants. It is convenient to major retail stores such as Fairway, Home Depot and Costco.
