White Plains is located in the state of New York and is a city and seat of the Westchester region, and it sits on the waterways between Bronx and Hutchinson. The area where the present-day White Plains was settled by the Dutch that came from Manhattan during the 17th century and the site was then being as the Weckquaesgeek tribe's farming area. The Wappinger Indians referred to the tribe as the Quarropas or the "White Marshes." The city was sold twice, in 1660 and 1663, by the Native American tribes through the various gatherings, which has caused a lengthy prosecution over the land's title and deferrals during the settlement of the region. White plains were shifted into the iron-mining movement's focal point in the area and filled the intersection for the new transportation lines.
