About Pound Ridge
Pound Ridge enjoys the benefits of being a truly rustic retreat located less than an hour from Manhattan. The town was largely destroyed by British troops during the Revolutionary War, and renovations and reconstruction didn’t really begin until the 1930’s when the town became the home of artists and musicians. Today’s Pound Ridge residents enjoy country life mixed with the sophistication afforded by small boutiques and gourmet restaurants.
