Hamilton County History

Located in the Mid-Adirondacks, Hamilton County offers its myriad forested mountains, seventy-seven major lakes, and countless streams, with beauties that only Nature can provide. Farming was the major occupation of its earliest settlers, who came to the county’s southern section just prior 1800. However, the rocky soil and short growing seasons in the county’s elevated lands proved discouraging.
