Saint Paul's Church, built in 1763, is a national historic site located in the southern part of the city, just across the street from our Mount Vernon facility. During the American Revolution, it served as a military hospital prior to and following the Battle of Pell's Point. Walking tours of this historic site are available on weekdays, and Church Tower Walks occur every other Friday (weather permitting) at 3 pm. Occurring approximately a mile away, the Battle of Pell's point created a delay of the British/Hessian army that was long enough to allow General George Washington and his troops to retreat to White Plains.

Granted cityhood in 1892, Mount Vernon today is officially part of Westchester County. In 1917, E.B. White, award-winning author of Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, graduated from Mount Vernon High School. Other natives include Denzel Washington, Art Carney, and baseball player Ralph Branca of the Brooklyn Dodgers, who played alongside Jackie Robinson and was the pitcher during the historic baseball moment "The Shot Heard ‘Round the World".
