Friendly and inviting, Potsdam welcomes
you! A Victorian and sandstone setting is the backdrop for
Potsdam's modern educational, cultural and scientific centers, medical
and shopping facilities, a wide variety of restaurants, local airport
and accommodations. Rich in heritage, the community is also on the
cutting edge of technology. Founded in 1806, Potsdam is situated
on an abundant and wide band of well-renowned, reddish-orange Potsdam
sandstone located north of the Adirondack foothills in central St.
Lawrence County. For nearly two centuries as the county's "cultural
and educational center," Potsdam is home to Clarkson University,
the State University College at Potsdam and one of the state's finest
public school systems.
