Chamber of Commerce
Montgomery County is located in the Mohawk Valley Region of New York State, 27 miles west of Albany. We are within 750 miles of over half of the population of the US and Canada, more than half of all business establishments and more than 60 percent of North America's manufacturing facilities and skilled workers.
The Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce is the official tourism promotion agency (TPA) for Montgomery County in upstate New York, also located within the Central Leather stocking tourism region of New York State. Montgomery County is famous for a multiculturalism that makes our geographic area so unique. Nowhere else in the area will you find such a rich collage of ethnic groups and cultures, including the Native American Mohawk Indians and the Amish, to name just a few.
Our history and heritage stretches all the way back to the colonial days of the pre-Revolutionary War in the early 1700s to the creation of the byzantine Erie Canal that heralded the dawn of Montgomery County as "the Gateway to the West." We are bordered to the southwest by Cooperstown in Otsego County and to the south by Schoharie County, as well as to our north by Fulton County in the foothills of the Adirondacks, and Saratoga County to our northeast.
If you are considering locating to Montgomery County, a vast array of financial incentives and financing programs exist to aid businesses in locating or expanding in Montgomery County.
