Frontier Fact: 1,697 Square Miles

The Adirondack Frontier is 1,697 square miles.


Spanning an expansive 1,697 square miles, the Adirondack Frontier is nestled amid the Adirondack Mountains and tracing the Canadian border. A region where the essence of New York’s wilderness thrives, offering a unique blend of charm, opportunity, and community spirit.

The strong values of community and neighborly support can be seen and felt in every aspect of life in Franklin County. Our region is nothing without its dedicated people — the type of people that wouldn’t think twice about helping a neighbor. It’s these same people propelling our county forward and growing our economy in ways it hasn’t before. We have grit — we aren’t afraid to roll up our sleeves or get a little dirty to get the job done. It’s this passion for growth and innovation that is framing Franklin County as an ideal place to be.

At the heart of our community’s passion for Franklin County is our unmatched landscape and environment. Something magical happens to kids that grow up playing at the foot of a mountain. Something inspiring happens to adults that are able to step away from the 9-5 and go on an afternoon hike. Something otherworldly happens for businesses positioned in the midst of such beauty. They find joy, appreciation, and respect in the small moments and carry it with them through their days. Here, you can ditch the urban bubble and breathe easy.

With a unique mix of old and new, rural and urban, we embrace and celebrate our unique differences as part of what makes us who we are._We have grit and old-school grace, industries both rooted in our history and blooming with our innovative creativity, and land for your next great adventure.

From the awe-inspiring landscapes to the welcoming community, there’s a unique spirit that permeates every corner of the Adirondack Frontier.

Let’s Grow!
