Welcome to Norwich New York!

The wonders of Norwich have been attracting people since before it even had a name and it hasn't slowed down since. People are often amazed at how much diversity you can find in the two square miles that make up the City of Norwich! It has long been the destination for agribusiness, museums, shopping, dining, manufacturing, and simply relaxing. It's filled with contrasts: old and new, country charm and modern sophistication.

Take a stroll and you're likely to see one of several houses of worship, a craft or art gallery, assorted restaurants, and many clothing and gift shops. For visitors, there are motels and B&Bs to offer comfortable lodging while visiting relatives, catching a performance at the Chenango Arts Council or seeing a movie at the Colonia Theatre, enjoying the County Fair, the Antiques Fair, or just out for a drive to see the colorful autumn leaves. For those who enjoy history, there's the Museum District, home to the Bullthistle Model Railroad Society Museum, the Northeast Classic Car Museum and the Chenango County Historical Museum. And don't miss seeing the real gateman's tower (1907) which was used as the logo for the City; the old train station that is City Hall; the Norwich Fire Department with their 1895 LaFrance steam fire truck in a glass room on the side of the building, and the big fireman's bell outside.

There's so much to see and do, you'll love your visit to Norwich, New York!
