A Little About South Salem
A South Salem resident commented to a Wall Street Journal interviewer saying that “It’s a really bucolic, quiet town. It’s got a beautiful country setting, a lot of beautiful acreage, gorgeous country roads. From some backyards, you [might] think you’re in the Adirondacks. Even though it’s a spread-out community, it’s also still a close-knit community, because we have different events that bring everyone together. It’s a fantastic place to grow up and to grow old.”
South Salem is a hamlet in the Town of Lewisboro in Westchester County. Records indicate that the Town was established in 1731. The saga of the Town’s name can be confusing! From 1731 until 1783 the town was known as Salem and included parts of North Salem; 1783 - 1806 it was Lower Salem; 1806 – 1840 folks lived in South Salem. Then, in February 1840, thanks to a generous $10,000 donation for the support of public education from businessman John Lewis, whose caveat was that the town be named for him, Lewisboro became the name on the map. Students living in South Salem attend schools in the katonah-Lewisboro School District.
Notable residents have included the 33rd Vice President of the United States Henry A. Wallace, Major John Andre (British spy held captive), Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, the photographer O. Winston Link, the artist Charles Sheeler (American, 1883–1965), the pianist Hélène Grimaud, the composer and arranger Clare Grundman, the singer and musical stage headliner Sally Ann Howes, the actress Colleen Dewhurst, and notorious real estate scion Robert Durst.
South Salem's location, close to Connecticut and just an hour's drive to New York City, makes it an easy commute. Its great sites include The Wolf Conservation Center and Onatru Farm Park and Preserve.
