Founded in 1841, Wyoming County is rich with history and is home to Letchworth State Park, “The Grand Canyon of the East” recently voted the #1 state park in America. It welcomes over 800,000 visitors from around the world each year to view it majestic natural beauty. Wyoming County represents all the best of what our unique region has to offer, from the beautiful places and pragmatic people to the rugged adventures and simple pleasures.

With its sixteen towns and villages, Wyoming County is a true four-season destination for family fun and outdoor adventures. Tap into spring while enjoying the sweetness of maple syrup, the exhilaration of white water rafting, or one of our many unique agricultural experiences. Camping, hiking, world class fishing, recreational boating and sightseeing highlight some of our warm weather offerings. You can also take in the tranquility of the woods in winter, whether it be on skis, snowshoes, snowmobiles or on horseback.

Wyoming County proudly holds the designation of the largest dairy producing county in New York and is recognized as a leader in the national agricultural community. (Quick Ag Facts) Wyoming County is also home to cutting edge agricultural technology and farming practices. Not only a leader in agriculture, the county is also the leader in the development and use of green energy practices such as wind power and manure digesters that produce sustainable clean energy. (click for agritourism info) The County is also home to over fifty outstanding manufacturers that sell their varying products worldwide including the famed Morton Salt Company located in Silver Springs.

The downtown areas of our four largest towns, Arcade, Attica, Perry and Warsaw are all alive with unique stores for you to shop in. (click for more) You can find anything from apples to firewood to antiques in unexpected places along the way. We have some of the best-kept culinary secrets in Western New York in the several restaurants that can be found around the county. Because agriculture is such a dominate factor, many restaurants utilize local grown produce and goods to further enhance your dining experience. You can also experience the County’s agricultural bounty by visiting a roadside farm stand, or one of our seasonal farm markets.

Local towns and villages are filled with historic sites and architecture that harkens to a bygone era, and our libraries (see below) and museums (click for more) are treasure troves of information for those seeking historical information about the county. Wyoming County is also rich with arts and cultural offerings and family opportunities that all have a positive impact on the quality of life in the region.

Wyoming County is home to plenty of historic treasures and points of interest including: the only fully operational 1800’s era steam locomotive that still exists in New York in the Arcade and Attica Railroad; Attica State Prison, one of the oldest operating correctional facilities in New York; the timeless gaslights in the Village of Wyoming; the historic Artisan Villa mansion, originally built by abolitionist congressman Augustus Frank; two Carnegie Libraries (Warsaw & Perry); the Seneca Indian history, Mary Jemison historic site, and the Glen Iris Inn located at Letchworth State Park. Many locations in the County were stops along the “Underground Railroad,” and the earliest anti-slavery society in the U.S. was formed in Warsaw, NY in 1833.

Wyoming County welcomes you to experience all that we have to offer. We are a strong community with a proud heritage and much to share with those who come for a visit.
