Pound Ridge

Pound Ridge is a town in Westchester County, New York, United States. The population was 5,104 at the 2010 census.[1]

The town is located in the eastern corner of the county, bordered by New Canaan, Connecticut, to the east, Stamford, Connecticut, to the south, Bedford, New York, to the west and Lewisboro, New York, to the north. The local school is the Pound Ridge Elementary School, one of five K-5 schools in the Bedford Central School District. Older children take the bus to the Fox Lane Campus in Bedford, where the middle and high schools are located.

In 1925 Westchester County purchased over 4000 acres of land in northern Pound Ridge and adjacent Lewisboro to create the Pound Ridge Reservation. The park was renamed the Ward-Pound Ridge Reservation in 1938 after the park planner and longtime Republican county leader William L. Ward.

Scotts Corners is a hamlet in the south part of the town which serves as the business district. This is where the post office and firehouse are located.
