Gouverneur "The One and Only"

Gouverneur is the only town of this name in the entire United States. The Greater Gouverneur Area Chamber of Commerce is a community organization whose members work to promote economic vitality and prosperity in the Gouverneur area. 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, but included in our membership, are many other wonderful larger and smaller businesses. The Gouverneur and St. Lawrence County Fairgrounds draw hundreds from all over the North Country, as does Flag Day and our many other events. After the year we just lived, we are all looking forward to getting back to our fun community events.

Our picturesque village park hosts events like the Farmer's Market, Arts in the Park, the Gouverneur Breast Cancer Walk, Community Sidewalk Sales, Pumpkin Festival, and the Gouverneur Garden Club Plant Sale. We look forward to again hosting the Annual Christmas parade this year to highlight the new holiday decorations in the Village park.

The park is bordered by churches, the Gouverneur Library, the Gouverneur Museum and main street shops. And, of course, the giant "LifeSavers®" in the Village Park is always a conversation starter. The story behind its arrival in the Village Park is an interesting one. Learn more about the LifeSavers® at the Gouverneur Museum
