Montgomery County lies just west of Albany, the Capitol of New York. This scenic and mostly rural area is home to ten villages and towns, and one city – Amsterdam. The County borders the Mohawk River on both the north and south sides, and it is this waterway to the West that initially spurred the County’s growth. The Erie Canal ran parallel to the Mohawk and connected the Hudson River to the Great Lakes.
As you can imagine, many of the County’s towns and villages grew around the canal, and while today this once vital waterway serves a primarily recreational role, Montgomery County still connects east to west via rail and the NYS Thruway.
Popular towns and villages include Amsterdam, Canajoharie, Florida, Fort Plain and St. Johnsville. For those who enjoy boating, there are a number of marinas and boat launches in the area, including Riverlink Park and the South Side boat launch in Amsterdam, as well as the Municipal Marina in St. Johnsville and Canajoharie’s Pavilion Landing. Farmer’s Markets, orchards and farms are also scattered throughout the area, offering residents plenty of healthy options for local produce and meats.
