This mural is of Samuel Palmer and his family. In 1700, Samuel Palmer, who had been elected the Town’s first supervisor in 1697, obtained the original leases on the “Middle Neck” area, and in 1722 the Palmer family obtained full title to the land which included what is now the Incorporated Village of Larchmont.

“Lucretia’s Women’s Rights” by iljin, an artist originally from Poland, now based in Dublin. LUCRETIA MOTT. “When Mott died in 1880, she was widely judged by her contemporaries… as the greatest American woman of the nineteenth century.” ~author Susan Jacoby.Lucretia Mott (née Coffin; January 3, 1793 – November 11, 1880) was a U.S. Quaker, abolitionist, women’s rights activist, and social reformer. She had formed the idea of reforming the position of women in society when she was amongst the women excluded from the World Anti-Slavery Convention in 1840. In 1848 she was invited by Jane Huntto a meeting that led to the first meeting about women’s rights. Mott helped write the Declaration of Sentiments during the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention. Her speaking abilities made her an important abolitionist, feminist, and reformer. When slavery was outlawed in 1865, she advocated giving former slaves who had been bound to slavery laws within the boundaries of the United States, whether male or female, the right to vote. She remained a central figure in the abolition and suffrage movement until her death in 1880. Mott was a Quaker preacher early in her adulthood.

“Rough Seas for Collins” by Victor Ash, a French artist, originally from Portugal, who now lives in Copenhagen. Edward Knight Collins I (5 August 1802 – 22 January 1878) was an American shipping magnate. Collins had the first U.S. transatlantic mail contract, built the first American steamships to cross the Atlantic and ran the fastest, most luxurious ships. He was considered to be ‘the most important person who ever lived in Larchmont,’ according to Judith Doolin Spikes, a Larchmont historian. In 1831 he became involved with the cotton trade between New Orleans and New York. He bought his first shipping line in 1831. In 1836, he launched the Dramatic Line of sailing packets, which quickly became a major presence on what was then the world’s most important shipping route, between New York and Liverpool.

While practicing law in New York City, he began buying up property in Larchmont. His famous house was called Larchmont Manor (18 Elm Ave.) and it was built in 1797.

BROKEN RECORD. “The more you talk about it, rehash it, rethink it, cross analyze it, debate it, respond to it, get paranoid about it, compete with it, complain about it, immortalize it, cry over it, kick it, defame it, stalk it, gossip about it, pray over it, put it down or dissect its motives it continues to rot in your brain. It is dead. It is over. It is gone. It is done. It is time to bury it because it is smelling up your life and no one wants to be near your rotted corpse of memories and decaying attitude. Be the funeral director of your life and bury that thing!”

“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”
Charles Bukowski
