The Town of Lewis, incorporated in 1805, was named for the third Governor of New York, Morgan Lewis. Located in northern central Essex County, Lewis is a small community known more for its peaceful ambiance than for its industry or tourism. It is located in the Adirondack Mountains, providing many recreational opportunities such as hiking, fishing, hunting, trapping, camping, and cross-country skiing.
Lewis is easily accessed from Exit 32 of the Adirondack Northway, or scenic Route 9 which runs through he center of town. (Click Here for a map of the Lewis area.)
Summer in Lewis can be spent swimming, both locally and in nearby Lake Champlain, kayaking, canoeing, and berry picking. In the fall, our spectacular Fall Foliage is second to none. Winter in Lewis brings snowmobiling, ice skating, and ice fishing on Lake Champlain.
Community spirit and neighborliness are the major attributes of Lewis. There are many organizations to join; The Lewis Volunteer Fire Department, The Elizabethtown-Lewis Ambulance Squad, 4-H, Scouts, Senior Circle, Fish & Game Club. There is a Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony and Caroling in December. Santa Claus comes to visit children in Lewis every year at the Fire House.
