GREENBURGH, N.Y. — With 2013 being the year of Greenburgh's 225th birthday, we're calling out all the history buffs who think they know Greenburgh.

Shown is the one of the former sites for Greenburgh Town Hall employees in the 1950s. Do you recognize it? It's at the northwest corner of West Hartsdale and Central Avenue. Throughout the years, the building has had various tenants, including Greenburgh town government — the building inspector and the Department of Public Works shared a small office on the second floor, according to the Greenburgh Bicentennial Commission's "Greenburgh: A Glimpse of Our Past."

For those who take pride in knowing their history, we have a trivia question: Where was the first Greenburgh Town Hall?

Hint: The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.
