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.
