Welcome to Chappaqua, New York! Just a short 49 minute drive from Manhattan, Chappaqua is charming hamlet in northern Westchester County, New York. The town was settled in the 1730’s by Quakers from Purchase, New York. Farming became the local trade, which gave way to dairy cattle and milk production. The railroad marked the arrival of the commuter from New York and continued to encourage the development of Chappaqua. The lists of famous or noteworthy citizens have grown quite lengthy over the years and are a source of local pride in the community. Horace Greeley, along with former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are among the list of noteworthy residents of Chappaqua.
