About Us

Since the Seneca Turnpike opened in the year 1800, New Hartford has been the center of commerce for the Greater Mohawk Valley. Everyday, thousands of people travel to New Hartford to shop, seek out services and attend our events. Even before Utica or Rome became cities, businesses have always flourished in New Hartford. This tradition continues today. 

With nearly 1,000 businesses located in the town, which includes the hamlets of Washington Mills and Chadwicks, and the Villages of New Hartford and New York Mills, New Hartford has always endured ups and downs in the economy and remained the center of commerce for the Greater Mohawk Valley. 

There has always been an association of business owners in New Hartford since Jedediah Sanger established his gristmill in 1790. While our Chamber of Commerce has only been formally incorporated since 1972, the business community here has always banded together to foster economic vitality and quality of life in our town. 

We invite you to get involved with our business association. Whether your business is located in the town limits of New Hartford, or it serves our residents, together we form a singular voice and contribute to a mission of collaborate effort to make New Hartford one of the best places to live and conduct business in the Greater Mohawk Valley Region.

Your business will surely see a great return on investment by joining our Chamber of Commerce. From qualified referrals and business leads, to timely and relevant training seminars for you and your employees, the New Hartford Chamber of Commerce stands ready to support you, your business and your employees in making our community a great place to live and do business. 

Please feel free to contact the Chamber directly or any of our committed board members to find out how we can positively impact your business. We look forward to serving you, your business and the community in which we live and work.
