Westbury Arts, in collaboration with the Westbury Historical Society, is marking the Village’s 90th anniversary this year with an exhibition of photos and other artifacts of historical interest.
Perhaps no other community in Nassau County has seen in 90 years as much rapid change as Westbury. From an agrarian Quaker community of dairy farms and potato fields adjacent to the Hempstead Plains, Westbury evolved into a suburban community bordering the Gold Coast. Then, this lifestyle was disrupted by World War II and the construction of the Northern State Parkway. This may have spelled doom, but Westbury has weathered many rebirths, and today its demographic change and downtown revitalization continue to rejuvenate our community.
Join us at Westbury Arts, 255 Schenck Ave., for the official opening reception of the Village of Westbury’s 90th Anniversary Exhibition on Saturday, November 5, 2022, from 7-9 pm. Register for free on Eventbrite.
