Dutch and Brittish settlers arrived in 1613, purchased lands from the Indians and established colonies right around the Greenburgh area.
In 1664, however, the Brittish gained control of the whole area, and was re-named New York, after the Duke of York.
Although the Town of Greenburgh was established in 1788 it is still a relatively unknown geographic entity. There is no "Greenburgh" railroad station, post office, or down-town area. Nor does it appear on New York State road maps. While the villages are recognized as separate communities, each with its own government, it was not until the mid 1940's that this
town assumed new importance in Westchester County. It was then that it became a heavily populated suburb of New York City.
By 1870, Greenburgh was a well established community. The main spurt in population occurred in the 1930's through the 1950's - bringing with it new roads homes, schools, religious institutions and commercial and industrial expansion.
Measured in terms of population density, the town of Greenburgh is the twelfth largest of the 931 towns in New York State. The 31 miles of land it covers lays between the Hudson River and the Bronx River.
There are 6 incorporated villages within the town boundaries:
- Dobbs Ferry
