In the 19th century, as industry expanded, Byram was home to Yankees, Germans, Irish, Italians, and Poles alike. It was associated more with East Port Chester than Greenwich, and did not get its current name until 1947. The name is rumored to be a tribute to the illegal offshore rum business Byram was a part of during Prohibition (Buy Rum became Byram).
Byram continued to develop as a residential area with a range of housing options, from grand waterfront mansions to smaller inland residences for factory workers. Commercial developments also took off and Byram grew to have its own downtown with stores, a school, library, and fire station.
In addition to having its own downtown, Byram is close enough to enjoy the town of Port Chester as well as the center of Greenwich. With its own park, fishing and garden clubs, and waterfront location Byram is a unique up-and-coming neighborhood with some of the most affordable housing in Greenwich.
