The Pelham Preservation Society is engaged in an effort to garner support from all stakeholders, including
the MTA, MetroNorth, state elected officials and local municipal boards to undertake a restoration of the Pelham Train
Station, including replacement of the aged asphalt roof with more historic material and re-painting of the station using
a palette of historic colors. We are also working to encourage the repair and preservation of the Highbrook Avenue
tunnel underpass and the painting and restoration of the Wolfs Lane riveted steel overpass.
These efforts follow from the Pelham Preservation Society's long-standing commitment
to the preservation and restoration of the Pelham Train Station and surrounding green spaces. Beginning with the renovation
of the parking lots and areas around the train station spearheaded by the Village of Pelham in cooperation with the MTA and
with funding support from former State Senator Guy Velella, the Pelham Preservation Society committed to planting the (then)
new traffic circle on the south side of the station, including the planting of a substantial caliper American "Princeton
Elm" tree. Subsequently, the organization helped replace the sign in the traffic circle on the southside of
the station. More recently, the Society re-planted around the elm tree with Oak Leaf Hydrangea, decorative grasses
and spring-flowering bulbs.
