Our Gouverneur

Gouverneur is the only town of this name in the entire United States. Located in the lowlands of the Adirondack region, along the banks of the Oswegatchie River, Gouverneur is home to expanses of beautiful farmland and many crystal clear lakes.

 

Located within easy distance to the Adirondack Mountain Park and the St. Lawrence River, the region is the international area of New York State. A popular vacation destination, it includes the Thousand Islands, the St. Lawrence Seaway, and Lake Ontario.

 

Four nearby colleges offer education, cultural events, and intellectual opportunities. Fort Drum, home to the 10th Mountain Division as well as fabulous scenery and excellent quality of life make the Gouverneur area a great place to visit or relocate. Gouverneur is also home to the Gouverneur St. Lawrence County Fair.

 

Our picturesque village park is host to regular Farmer's Markets, Antiques in the Park and Oktoberfest events. The village park is bordered by churches, the library, the Gouverneur Museum and main street shops. And, of course, the giant Life Savers in the Village Park is always a conversation starter.

 

Gouverneur offers a thriving business climate, excellent hospital, and a small town atmosphere.

 

Gouverneur is business friendly, home to large companies like Cives, Kinney Drugs and also many wonderful small businesses.
