Cortland County, New York

Cortland County, New York's motto is “The Gateway to the scenic Finger Lakes region.” A mostly rural county, it lies situated between Ithaca, Binghamton and Syracuse. Fifteen towns and three villages make up the county, with Cortland serving as the county seat. The population numbers at almost 49,000 according to the Census 2000.

This picturesque area proudly retains its wonderful historic downtown areas, where antique shops thrive. Each season offers its own unique activities. Spring brings the Central New York Maple Festival in the town of Marathon, where there the tradition of tapping the trees for syrup has been practiced since the days when Indians inhabited the region. The opening of trout season begins, and Cortland County’s 130 miles of rivers and streams delight the locals and visitors alike. 'Bluegrass on the Green' rings out from the quaint, historic village of Homer. Summer reigns as the best time for hiking and biking through the 30,000 acres of state forestland. Twenty-five lakes and ponds offer boating, swimming and fishing while five golf courses surrounded by breathtaking beauty await.

Autumn remains the most spectacular season in Upstate New York, and Cortland County boasts some of the finest fall foliage. Local towns and villages proudly celebrate their rural heritage with harvest festivals such as the Cincinnatus Corn Fest and the Great Cortland Pumpkinfest. Hunting season is beautiful in the vividly changing forests. Winter gleams in its entire snowy splendor and Cortland County offers three excellent ski areas. Greek Peak Ski Resort, Labrador Mountain, and Song Mountain all display marvelous slopes for downhill skiing, while the surrounding areas contain miles of trails for snowmobiles and cross-country skiers. Many romantic bed & breakfasts and quaint cottages can be rented through every season.

With all the natural beauty, tourism remains strong in Cortland County, but that is not the only industry. The Cortland County Business Development Corporation, founded in 1982, plays a large role in bringing new corporations and firms into the area. Over $90 million in new investment programs have been spent in the last few years. Designated as one of New York’s Empire Zones, there are many state and local incentives in place to enhance new business growth.

With a central location in the middle of New York, and excellent highway access to every region, as well as Washington DC, economists call Cortland County the ‘heartland of future growth’. Manufacturing, medical and health services, metal fabrication and a strong wood products industry all thrive here, along with other businesses.

Cortland County, New York is small-town America at its finest. With a deep respect and admiration for its past, and a bright and prosperous future waiting, Cortland County has much to offer residents and visitors alike and serves Cortlandville, Marathon, Cincinnatus and Virgil.
