There is a different house that will pique almost everybody’s interest.

  • View two historic houses, dating to the early 1800’s, when Yorktown was once part of the 86,000 acre Van Cortlandt Manor. The older homes were once owned by prominent Yorktown farming families such as the Horton family, the Covert family and the Purdy family.
  • Step into a present day home with an impressive art collection which reflects the couple’s eclectic interests and their shared love of art, travel and animals.
  • Enter a home that radiates peace and tranquility, the current owners are interior designers who have masterfully created a glorious living space, adorned with fabulous art, history and furnishings.
  • Stop by the Groveville United Methodist Church Cemetery to see how the grounds were restored to make it a respectable final resting place for 30 people, 9 of whom are Civil War veterans.
  • Visit the Community Church of Yorktown, which was once the Baptist Church. Visit this venerable place of worship that has been in our community for 200 years.  Stroll through the cemetery to see tombstones dating back to the first families of Yorktown and learn some interesting facts about the early pioneers of our area.
