Muscoot Farm was originally a gentleman’s farm owned by the Hopkins family and used as their summer estate and dairy farm from 1880 to 1924. In 1924 the family moved to the farm year-round and continued the dairy business until 1967 when Westchester County acquired the property. In 2016 Muscoot was re-named in memory of Alfred B. DelBello, who served as Westchester County Executive from 1974 to 1983, and who played an integral role in preserving the park as an interactive farm during his tenure.
THE PURPOSE OF MUSCOOT FARM IS TO PRESERVE AND INTERPRET, FOR THE PUBLIC BENEFIT, THE AGRICULTURAL, CULTURAL AND NATURAL HERITAGE OF A WESTCHESTER COUNTY FARM, CIRCA 1880 – 1930
