Traveling through Northern Westchester you are bound to stumble across something unexpected. No matter if it has been there for years or a day, there is bound to be something that makes you stop and ask yourself “how could I have missed this before?”.
At WestchesterNorth, we are highlighting the people and places that make northern Westchester a special place to call home. These places represent a ‘pin drop’ on our map of memories.
Today we profile barber and hairstylist John Vaccaro of Mt. Kisco’s “Barber Pole”. The “Barber Pole” is a unique hybrid Haircutting Parlor and Barber Shop Museum. Once you step through the door you find yourself transported back to in time to the 1890s. Much of the memorabilia is authentic turn of the century (the last one, not this one), from the antique brass cash register to the barbering implements, tonic bottles and other tools barbers used back when they were synonymous with surgeons. (That spinning red and white pole meant more than a shave and a haircut for two bits).
At the “Barber Pole” all the memorabilia on display is offered for sale. You can buy, sell, trade or just bring in your barbershop memorabilia for a Free Appraisal. We encourage you to stop by and take a look.
The “Barber Pole” is located across from the Mount Kisco train station on Kirby Plaza.
