Welcome to the Town of Pittstown Website

Small town America still exists in the rolling hills, valleys, and backyard creeks that make up the Town of Pittstown on the outskirts of Upstate New York's Capital Region.

Founded as a township by patent in 1761 by King George III who specifically stated that the land should be called “Pittstown in honor of William Pitt, Earl of Chatham” the leading statesman of England at the time. Pittstown is a community steeped in history, its picturesque countryside neighborhoods a reflection of the simpler life and hometown values of decades past. Pittstown beckons you with acres of green meadows, towering forests, lush farmland, and beautiful shoreline vistas of the scenic Tomhannock Reservoir.
