Chazy's largely agricultural community is most known for its many Adirondack Coast farms, orchards, sugar shacks and vineyards. Chazy is even home to the world’s largest McIntosh apple orchard. The Adirondack Coast Wine Trail features several award-winning Chazy wineries, allowing you to travel on quiet roads that offer magnificent views of Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains of Vermont.
Another way to experience Chazy’s commitment to agriculture is by visiting the Heart’s Delight Farm Heritage Exhibit, located at Miner Institute on Miner Farm Road. The museum is a permanent tribute to William and Alice Miner and the beautiful farm they developed on the Miner family homestead, beginning in 1903.
The Alice T. Miner Colonial Collection, located on Route 9 in Chazy, also offers a wonderful glimpse into the region’s past. The museum, which opened in 1924 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, allows visitors to travel back in time through its 15 rooms filled with period furniture, paintings, military artifacts and much more.
A great way to discover Chazy is by walking or cycling along its scenic roads. In Chazy’s charming downtown, you can view historic homes along the Chazy River and enjoy recreational parks, unique shops and restaurants.
Lake Alice, located adjacent to Miner Institute, offers a wide variety of year-round, Adirondack outdoor activities. The Lake Alice Wildlife Management Area is used for hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and birding.
