About the Region
Schuyler County is located in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York. The area is one of the most picturesque scenic landscapes in the United States with unmatched lakes, forests, and communities that date back to pre- revolutionary times. In fact, Schuyler County is named in honor of an American Revolutionary War General, Philip John Schuyler. General Schuyler was also a US Senator and a member of the 1775 Continental Congress.
Schuyler County is famous as the current and original home of the Watkins Glen International Raceway, the Watkins Glen State Park, and beautiful Seneca Lake with its surrounding wineries, as well as a growing number of breweries and distilleries. We have many places to hike and bike, and a number of festivals and special events. The area is a great place to visit, work, live, and raise a family. It is also an easy commute to larger metropolitan areas, and is surrounded by some of the finest private and state universities and colleges in the world.
