Drum Country Business

The Best Location Is More Than Just A Location, It’s An Asset!

Drum Country, New York—Lewis, Jefferson and St. Lawrence Counties—is located in North Central New York about 70 miles north of Syracuse. Drum Country is bordered on the west by Lake Ontario, north by the St. Lawrence River, and to the east by the mighty Adirondack Mountains.

Named for Fort Drum, the largest Army installation in the Northeast, the character and economy of the region is deeply enmeshed with the post and its culture. The installation provides employment for more than 4,600 area residents and generates $1.5 billion in annual economic impact. Soldiers, spouses and their children stationed at Fort Drum, the majority of who live in the communities surrounding Fort Drum, are a driving force to continued economic growth and development in the region. In Drum Country, it’s no wonder we say, “You see a soldier—we see a workforce.”
