CLUB HISTORY

WestchesterMembership1_horizontal

This wonderful old picture shows some of our most prominent members past and present. 

 

Research indicates that the first show the Westchester Kennel Club held was at Gedney Farms in 1906 on the estate of its president, Howard Willetts. There were 583 dogs entered, and the Best in Show winner was Winthrop Rutherford’s Smooth Fox Terrier bitch, Champion Warren Remedy. Since then, we have held ninety-eight shows as of 2014 with many over having over 3000 dogs entered at times. Later, the show was held at the prestigious Polo Grounds in Purchase N.Y.  Since 1973, our permanent our show had been held at  Lyndhurst in Tarrytown, New York, a National Trust Historic site.Today our show is held at North Branch Park in Bridgewater New Jersey.
