Scarsdale, Did You Know...?

SCARSDALE, N.Y.- That there is a propeller from a World War I fighter plane displayed in Scarsdale Village Hall?

On the left side of the main entrance of Scarsdale Village Hall an old, wooden propeller with a clock in the middle of it, hangs above a display case.

Although the history of the propeller clock is not certain, it is believed to have been a propeller taken off of a World War I fighter plane - a gift from the Republic Aviation Corporation to the Scarsdale American Legion and to Scarsdale Village.

Scarsdale Village and the American Legion Post 52 raised enough money to build 125 Thunderbolt fighter planes in World War I.

The clock on the propeller is set for 11 a.m. to represent the end of World War, I which happened at the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, according to the plaque displayed to the side of the propeller.
