Bavarian Club Edelweiss Westchester, Inc.


In February 1932 two couples performed a Schuhplattler dance at a masquerade party hosted by the Steuben Societies of White Plains.  

The entertainment was enthusiastically accepted.  One of the dancers, Franz Stein, who was an emigrant from Bavaria and a member of the Gebirgs Tracht Erhaltungs Verein Chiemgauer Grabenstatt in his hometown of Grabenstatt, Bavaria decided to form a schuhplattler club in Westchester County in order to carry on the traditions of his homeland.  Thus, Bavarian Club Edelweiss Westchester was born.

The Bavarian Club Edelweiss is a member of Gauverband Nordamerika, German American Society of Westchester, and Vereinigte Bayern of New York.
