In precolonial times Sparta was a separate village with a busy port. It was a bustling place, and was shelled by the HMS Vulture warship in the Revolutionary War. There are so many delightful antique homes here, including the old Sparta Calvary Baptist Church, and an old brick stage coach stop that curves around a corner, that Sparta as a neighborhood was named to the National Register of Historic Places.
There were decades where no homes in the area sold outside of the residents and their circle of friends. At local parties or in neighborly conversation, people would mention that they were going to move, and a neighbor would bring over a relative or friend to buy the home.
Similarly, for decades the involvement of the residents in the arts has been a recurring theme. Almost every family has an artist, writer or performer or two in their family. If you are lucky enough to get an invitation to a Sparta Association Holiday Party, it is not to be missed.
From Sparta you can walk to the Scarborough train station and Arcadian Shopping Center.
The Sparta Park is a great spot to see the river or play with the kids, and recently hosted a wedding! The Sparta Association owns the Jug Tavern, which is the oldest structure still standing in Ossining and is a museum for the area. There are walking tours of Sparta held periodically. Another thing not to be missed!
