Graced by fields, pastures and open land, Lewisboro was once considered as a possible location for the headquarters of the United Nations. Within commuting distance of Manhattan but with a landscape and culture more akin to its New England neighbors, it's no wonder. From debates over smallpox inoculations to a survey of the area's remarkably fine dining options, official town historian Maureen Koehl has culled the best of her popular "Window Into History" column to create a charming and wide-ranging history of Lewisboro and its six hamlets that is sure to enchant visitors and longtime residents alike.
