TOWN of Gouverneur NEW YORK Est. 1805

Gouverneur... The One and Only

Gouverneur is the Gateway to St. Lawrence County. And it is the only town of that name in the entire United States, but that's not the only thing that makes Gouverneur very special.

This historic community was founded in 1805, and is nestled between the foothills of the majestic Adirondack Mountains and the bustling Thousands Islands of the St. Lawrence River. Gouverneur offers the comfort and safety of living in small-town America, knowing you are a short trip away from a wealth of options for work and play.

Twenty miles to the south is Fort Drum, home of the renowned 10th Mountain Infantry Division. Within 40 miles to our north are the academic communities of St. Lawrence University, SUNY Canton, SUNY Potsdam, Jefferson Community College and Clarkson University. Gouverneur is centrally located amid a large range of recreational opportunities. Shopping, skiing, hiking, culture - it's all nearby!
