Heritage Trail

Welcome to The Village of Westbury Heritage Trail!

Westbury Mayor Peter I. Cavallaro and the Village Board tasked the Westbury Village Historic Preservation Committee with the project of selecting local sites within the Village to be designated as having historic significance. the goal is to highlight and commemorate the Village's rich local history which dates back to the 1600's when Quaker farmers first settled in the area.

Westbury Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (1671)

Hicks Nurseries (1853)

Site of Vanderbilt Cup Race Grandstand (1904)
