Horace Greeley

Horace 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.
