The historic Village of Greenwich is located near the battlegrounds that led to American independence in 1776. Nineteenth century storefronts line Main Street, and the downtown area is surrounded by stately Greek Revival and Victorian homes.
Here, in the southern part of Washington County, the rolling hills, rivers, sweeping mountain views, and quiet beauty underscore the drama of the changing seasons.
While Washington County is known for its dairy farms and orchards, Greenwich offers more than fresh produce to its nearly 5,000 residents. Loaded with antique shops, artisans, and fine dining, Greenwich has a lively artistic community, a close-knit lifestyle, a well-regarded public school system, access to quality health care, universities, community colleges, and a vibrant business community.
Anglers know Greenwich because it is nestled along the banks of the Batten Kill, widely regarded as one of the most technically difficult fly-fishing stream in America. Skiers enjoy the town’s close proximity to the best resorts in New York and Vermont. Golfers are discovering the region after it was named one of the two best places to live and golf by Golf Digest.
Easy access to many prominent colleges and universities, along with year-round cultural and recreational opportunities afforded by nearby Saratoga Springs, Lake George, the Capital District, Manchester, VT and the Adirondack and Green Mountains, make Greenwich a highly desirable place to live, work, play, and raise a family.
The district and community collaborate on student centered initiatives such as the LIFTS (Learning Is Fun This Summer) program, community theatre, summer arts, family winter weekend, foreign exchange programs, and an Underground Railroad symposium.
