Located in the heart of St. Lawrence County and abutting the beautiful Raquette River, Potsdam truly is a first-rate place to work, live and learn. According to the St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce, the average price for a home is approximately $60,000 with prices varying within municipalities across the North Country. Apartment rental prices averaged $425 per month in 2000, while home rentals averaged between $600-$1000 per month.

The Town of Potsdam is home to roughly 16,000 year-round residents, and when Clarkson University and SUNY Potsdam are both in session, the population increases by approximately 7,500 students. Our universities offer year-round entertainment through lectures, symposiums, world-class musical performances, cultural events, sporting events and much more.

In addition to the two colleges located in Potsdam, we are fortunate to border another educational center just ten miles away in the town of Canton where St. Lawrence University and SUNY Canton add to the educational and cultural allure of this beautiful area.  Further, Potsdam and the surrounding areas are home to many lakes, ponds and rivers, hiking and cross country ski trails, as well as the Adirondack Mountains that allow for many hours of outdoor recreation-whatever the season.  If one prefers to stay inside, downtown Potsdam offers many delightful shops, a movie theater, bowling, several eateries for different pallets, and many unique retail stores.
