Pemberwick, a small residential section located just north of the Post Road on the western edge of town, borders New York State in the southern-most portion of the greater-Glenville area. Many of the homes in Pemberwick lie on the banks of the beautiful Byram River which runs along Pemberwick Road.
The community prides itself on its own Pemberwick Park, the popular site of many local sporting events. The 8-acre facility consists of a baseball diamond, tennis, basketball and bocci courts, a playground and picnic area. Other sections of the Park include a conservation area with winding trails, flowers and tall native grasses, and a heavily-wooded 21-acre area. Town legend tells us that a cave in this wooded section was the dwelling of a mysterious "Leatherman" who roamed the woods late in the nineteenth century dressed in animal skins and surviving on food given to him by local residents.
Today, Pemberwick is a great little community, sharing local amenities with its Glenville neighbors. Proximity to New York makes Pemberwick an extremely desirable location for those working in and around Westchester and Manhattan.
