Yorktown-Heights is an unincorporated hamlet located inside the town of Yorktown in northern Westchester County, just 35 miles from New York City. As of the 2000 census, the hamlet of Yorktown Heights had a population of 7,972. The historic town of Yorktown is situated amid 40 square miles of scenic rolling hills and farmland. After the Revolutionary War, the township was officially designated as "Yorktown" in commemoration of the Americans victory at Yorktown, Virginia on October 19, 1781. Over 1400 acres of town and state parks are in the Yorktown Heights area and five miles of the 22-mile North County Trailway Bike and Pedestrian Path is located in Yorktown. Other points of interest include two 18-hole golf courses, the nature preserve at Teatown Lake Reservation, and the Croton Reservoir and Gatehouse. The Yorktown Museum is located in Yorktown Heights, and provides a fascinating look at the area's history. You can visit an 18th century home that is part of the museum, or an early Mohegan Indian Settlement. The museum also features the Old Put Railroad, five permanent exhibit rooms and several changing exhibits, a gift shop and genealogical center.
