Pound Ridge

The 411: Rustic, rural, bucolic, pastoral—these are the words that come to mind when people think of the Town of Pound Ridge, which comprises three hamlets (Pound Ridge, Sarles Corners, and the business district of Scotts Corners) situated on a relatively small (23.5 square miles), verdant swath of land in Westchester’s easternmost corner and adjacent to both Bedford and New Canaan, Connecticut. Despite its tranquil, “horse country” vibe (most homes are housed on two- and three-acre parcels of land), Pound Ridge is chic and sophisticated, if not urbane, and the town’s history is as illustrious as some of its famous residents, past and present.

Originally inhabited by Mohican Indian tribes (Kitchawan and Siwanoy), the town was settled in the 1640s. Much of the town was burned during the Revolution in 1779 and, by the 1920s, the town was barely populated. In the 1930s, Pound Ridge began attracting prominent actors, musicians, and others in the arts, one of the earliest of whom was Big Band leader Benny Goodman. Today, Pound Ridge is home to actor Richard Gere, whose Bedford Post Inn & Restaurants are big hits in neighboring Bedford. In addition to the restaurants and antiques shops in quaint Scotts Corners, Pound Ridge boasts spectacular schools and the largest park in the county, the 4,700-acre Ward Pound Ridge Reservation.
