Katonah, a hamlet of the Town of Bedford, is named for Chief Katonah, an American Indian from whom the land was purchased by a group of English colonists. Today’s village comprises approximately 55 buildings moved in 1897 from the original town of Katonah, an area now flooded by Cross River Reservoir. Located within an hour of New York City in Westchester County, the Bedford/Katonah area boasts a wealth of vibrant cultural attractions, eateries and food shops, parks and nature centers, energetic community organizations, and specialty shops.
