Mamaroneck History

Originally, there were two farming communities on the side of the River Mamaroneck. They were merged as the commercial Village of Mamaroneck in the 1890s. The village was incorporated in 1895. According to one tradition, the village was named after a local chief. However, others believe that the name was derived from an Indian term meaning "the place of rolling stones" or "the place where fresh water falls into salt." Mamaroneck was once a popular summer residence for the wealthy residents of New York City. The first railroad from New York City entered the village in 1848.
