County Information
St. Lawrence County is named for the St. Lawrence River.The river borders the entire northern edge of the county. The Saint Lawrence river was discovered  by French Explorer Jacque Cartier in 1534 and named after a Catholic Saint. In 1683, St. Lawrence county was part of Albany County, which also included all of the state of  Vermont, and with no western boundaries. In 1766, Cumberland and Gloucester Counties split off and were situated in what is now known as Vermont. By 1802, Albany county had been split into many counties, including Clinton, Herkimer and Montgomery. Parts of all 3 of these counties were taken to form what is now St. Lawrence County.
