Ours is the land of the great outdoors. We have something for everyone: scenic nature settings, fishing, camping, hunting, bicycling, backpacking and hiking, ATV riding, skiing, snowmobiling, and much, much more. Lewis County offers solace from the hectic pace of the surrounding world.
Halfway between the St. Lawrence River and the New York State Thruway, Lewis County is bordered on the west by the Tug Hill Plateau and on the east by the Adirondack Mountains. It is a land of prosperous dairy farms, quiet woodlands, clear streams and lakes, and clean air. It is a place where friendly, honest people go about their business with a cheerful word for the passing stranger.
Lewis County still maintains the spirit of the early settlers. Many of their original dwellings still stand, and our people proudly remain close to our past. For more on historic sites in Lewis County, please click here.
