Somers

Somers – a growing town seeped in history and tradition. The cradle of the American Circus, Somers was incorporated in 1788.

The hamlets of Lincolndale, Shenorock, Granite Springs, Purdys, Baldwin Place and Amawalk are located within its borders. The Town has numerous lake communities, including Lake Purdys, Shenorock & Lincolndale. Both town and county-owned parks such as Reis, Muscoot, Koegel and Lasdon Parks provide recreational opportunities for residents, as well as the recently acquired Angle Fly Preserve. Somers hamlet is on the National Register of Historic Places and spans some 56 acres in eastern Somers and includes Ivandell Cemetery, site of the Richard Somers Veterans Memorial, and Town-owned Bailey Park and the Elephant Hotel, seat of Somers' Town government. The Elephant Hotel, and Old Bet statue, themselves, have an even greater historic distinction of being named National Historic Landmarks by the U.S. Secretary of the Interior in 2005. The Town's historic character and its wealth of natural areas lend a rural sensibility that has attracted many to live in the Town.
