Larchmont / Mamaroneck

Both communities have a history of being coastal resorts for affluent community members and visitors.

Welcome to Larchmont / Mamaroneck

Larchmont and Mamaroneck are both villages within the Town of Mamaroneck in Westchester County, New York. The villages have a combined population of about 25,000 residents with 5,900 and 19,300 respectively. They are on the southern border of the county, only 21 miles away from the Manhattan.
Both communities have a history of being coastal resorts for affluent community members and visitors. Most of what used to be the Victorian cottages and luxurious inns during this period have been converted to private residences and estates. The beaches, downtown businesses, and Manor parks are the great remnants of the area’s once-hailed summer retreats from the city and provided some residents with year round Vacation homes.

The History of Larchmont and Mamaroneck

The village of Larchmont came along much later in comparison to some of the other communities in Westchester County. The land was once inhabited by the Siwanoy until the Dutch discovered it in 1661. It wasn’t established as an independent village until the 1890s. Later, it became a popular site for summer retreats and vacations.
The village of Mamaroneck was a farming community until the creation of the automobile, which made it feasible for residents to commute to and from the city. This also made it possible for the village and greater town to become a coastline resort in the summer. Robert Ripley, the founder of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, had a home on Believe It Or Not (BION) Island right off of Taylors Lane, as did Ezio Pinza and Jonathan Winters.

Larchmont and Mamaroneck School District

Both villages are part of the greater Mamaroneck School district. The district has six different schools including four elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school and a total enrollment of about 5,300 students. The district utilizes the House Model to create small schools within each of the school buildings. This keeps classroom and grade size small to ensure the greatest impact for students at every grade level.

Elementary Schools (Grades K-5):

  • Central Elementary School
  • Chatsworth Ave Elementary School
  • Mamaroneck Ave Elementary School
  • Murray Ave Elementary School

Middle Schools (Grades 6-8):

  • Hommocks Middle School
  • Mamaroneck High School
The goal of the Mamaroneck Central School District is to engage and prepare students for the developing global economy. The school district believes in providing an intimate space where students have the chance to voice themselves. The high school offers many elective courses so that students can choose the ones that best suit their interests and future goals.
The district is also a strong proponent for the arts. It offers high school students a full four years of courses in the performing and visual arts, as well as music along with their regular studies. The Mamaroneck Central School District also keeps students engaged outside the classroom with over 50 team sports and 80 clubs in its high school alone. It’s no wonder parents are moving to Mamaroneck and Larchmont in droves.
