|Location||14 Lawton St., New Rochelle, New York|

The Pioneer Building was built in 1892 to house the offices of The Pioneer, a local newspaper. John New & Son, the New Rochelle builder responsible for its construction, is credited with its design.
In the late 1970s, the building was vacant and was considered a candidate for demolition. Sylvia Schur acquired the building from the city of New Rochelle to house her business, Creative Food Services, and undertook an extensive restoration project that was completed in 1981.
The Pioneer Building is a landmark in New Rochelle, partly because other historic buildings that once surrounded it have been demolished and replaced by newer construction. It was added to the Westchester County Inventory of Historic Places on January 5, 1988, to the New York State Register of Historic Places on November 23, 1983, and to the National Register of Historic Places on December 29, 1983.
