Yonkers Historic Sites

Hey everyone! This is Michael from the Will Library. As you know, Yonkers has a rich and interesting history. There are tons of historic homes and buildings! While you wouldn’t be able to enter them right now, it is worth looking at them from the outside and imagining the history that occurred within their walls. If you walk or drive by these places, it is worth having a closer look at them. Though I could have written about many interesting places, for now I have focused on two in particular.

St. John’s Episcopal Church

St. John’s Church was built in 1752 by Frederick Philipse III, who was a Loyalist during the American Revolution. During this war, wounded soldiers from both sides were treated by members of St. John’s Church congregation. After the war, the church was confiscated by the New York State government due to Philipse’s allegiance during the war. After two acts of state legislation in 1786 and 1792, the church was given back to the local Episcopal parish. Inside the church is a bell that was created in 1808 by Colonel Benjamin Hanks, a renowned bell-maker. Hanks had been a drummer in General Israel Putnam’s 3rd Connecticut Regiment.

The south wall and main door of this church are original. Additions to the church were made in 1874 by architect Edward Tuckerman Potter and between 1890 and 1891 by Robert Henderson Robertson.  The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. 

St. John’s Episcopal Church is located at Hudson Street in Yonkers. 

 

Yonkers Historical Society

Sherwood House

Thomas Sherwood, a tenant farmer of Philipsburg Manor, built this house as part of his farm in 1740. During the American Revolution both British and American troops passed by it. George Washington passed by the Sherwood House as he inspected Tuckahoe Road, which he ordered to be expanded. British General Sir Banastre Tarleton marched past this house with his troops on the way to a raid in Bedford, NY. The farm was confiscated by the New York State government after the American Revolution because the owner, Frederick Philipse, was a Loyalist. It was purchased by Stephen Sherwood, son of Thomas, in an auction. Ownership of the house changed several times during its history, which you can read about on The Yonkers Historical Society website.

The Yonkers Historical Society has been its caretaker since 1955. In 1984, the Sherwood House was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

The Sherwood House is located on Tuckahoe Road in Yonkers.
