Pelham Manor has a long and rich history dating from before the first Dutch settlers arrived. The area was home to the Siwanoy Indians who sold approximately 9,200 acres which includes what is now Pelham, New Rochelle and part of the Bronx to William Pell in 1654. In Colonial times, the Battle of Pelham, fought on October 18th, 1776 was a turning point in the War of Independence.
An elected Mayor and Board of Trustees govern Pelham Manor. They supervise a full-time professional Village Manager, who manages day-to-day operations. The Village provides basic fire and police protection; public works (trash collection, street and sewer repair) and manages administrative matters, such as building permits, zoning and planning codes. These services are provided through our own police, fire and public works departments.
