Reproduction panoramic map of the borough of Larchmont, New York, published by Hughes & Bailey in 1904. Larchmont is a village on the shore of Long Island Sound in Westchester County. Larchmont's oldest home, which still stands today, is the "Manor House" on Boston Post Road. The home was built by Peter Jay Munro in 1797. Munro, who was John Jay's nephew, was an active abolitionist and helped to found the New York State Manumission Society with his uncle and Alexander Hamilton. To combat a dust problem at the Manor House, Mr. Munro had his manor gardener plant Scottish Larch trees all along the front of the property, which eventually gave the village its name. The community's Larchmont Yacht Club was founded in 1880. By 1904, Larchmont was a popular resort community with several high class hotels and Victorian cottages serving wealthy New Yorkers.
