Horace Greeley

horace.pngHorace Greeley, founder of the New York Tribune, was America's foremost newspaper editor, author of several books, and a highly popular public lecturer. He ran unsuccessfully for president against incumbent Ulysses S. Grant in 1872, and died within a month of the election. Greeley began assembling his 78-acre farm in 1853. It occupied much of what is now central Chappaqua, including the Horace Greeley House, the Robert E. Bell Middle School, the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, the Chappaqua Library, and the Chappaqua railroad station.
