Larchmont Virtual
Photo Museum

Larchmont's history is recorded in many documents, photographs, paintings and drawings. In an effort to preserve these images, and to make them more accessible. the Historical Society has scanned and digitized much of our own collection, and is actively seeking to collaborate in other preservation efforts by other community organizations. In our online archive, there are now more than 4,500 photographs of Larchmont. Our goals were

  • Preserving old photos and slides in an additional format.
  • Making the images available online.
  • Supporting other community organizations in preserving historic photo collections

This is a very large set of collections. To guide you, we are introducing some of the collections with narratives below. Alternatively, you can browse the entire collection at once at:

Larchmont Images

From the main site you can explore the collections, and search on dates, places and people. The collections are a work in progress - constantly being updated and annotated - and we need your help.

  • Volunteer to help in annotating the collection.
  • Let us add your family's collection of Larchmont photos to the archive.
  • Make a donation to defray the ongoing costs of maintaining the archive.
