Homes within the official historic district display the plaque. New construction additions to these homes are required to adhere to a strict set of stylistic guidelines, in order to preserve the distinctive architectural character of Irvington.

Irvington LOVES to celebrate Halloween.

Each fall, as the leaves change colors, the neighborhood comes alive with the sights and sounds of Halloween, as residents try to outdo each other with extravagant yard displays that would make the Headless Horseman proud. The yearly Halloween festival events include a street fair, a masquerade ball, a ghost tour, a puppet show, costume contests, a silent auction, a 'vampire run' and, of course, trick or treating.
