Gouverneur is the only town of this name in the entire United States. Our community offers a business friendly environment, excellent hospital, and a small town atmosphere. Gouverneur is home to large companies like Cives and Kinney Drugs and also many other wonderful large and small businesses.
The Greater Gouverneur Area Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organization whose members work to promote economic vitality and prosperity in the Gouverneur area.
Our mission is to encourage community growth by promoting tourism and local business. We value a healthy and productive economic community, a high quality of life, and efficient and sustainable business practices.
Our picturesque village park hosts Chamber sponsored events like the Farmer's Market, the Flag Day Parade, Community Sidewalk Sales and the Annual Christmas parade. The park is bordered by churches, the Gouverneur Library, the Gouverneur Museum and main street shops. And, of course, the giant "Life Savers" in the Village Park is always a conversation starter.
