Visit Potsdam

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.
