Family Home in Rye, New York

56 Locust Avenue, Rye, NY


My husband's mother was from Rye, and this was her family home. I think it was built by her grandfather in the 1890's, and her mother lived there until she passed away in 1973.

The building is currently a business and we were very glad to see that it is being maintained so well.
