Year in

Dedicated to two local men who gave their lives in the Korean War.

For Larchmont, 1954 was a year in which the local scene was influenced by external events and issues. The community struggled with the plans for construction of the New England Thruway. The shoreline was buffeted by natural events such as Hurricane Carol, and by extraordinary events such as the crash of a jet fighter near Manor Park. The School Board announced a major expansion of the High School.
