Gouverneur, the One and Only
The Greater Gouverneur Area Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organization whose members work to promote economic vitality and prosperity in the Gouverneur area. Gouverneur is the only town of this name in the entire United States. Our community offers a business friendly environment, excellent hospital, and a small town atmosphere.
Gouverneur is home to large companies like Cives and Kinney Drugs and also many other wonderful large and small businesses. The Gouverneur and St. Lawrence County Fairgrounds draw hundreds from all over the North Country to the county fair, Pumpkin Festival and many other events.

Our picturesque village park hosts events like the Farmer's Market, Arts in the Park, the Gouverneur Breast Cancer Walk, Community Sidewalk Sales, Gouverneur Garden Club Plant Sale, and the Annual Christmas parade.
The park is bordered by churches, the Gouverneur Library, the Gouverneur Museum and main street shops. And, of course, the giant "Life Savers" in the Village Park is always a conversation starter.
