We also have the Newcomb Historical Museum, a Board of Regents 501.c organization, partially funded by the Town of Newcomb to showcase and educate you on everything regarding Newcomb’s rich history.

Newcomb is a small, historic Adirondack town with wide open wilderness spaces and experiences waiting to happen. We are a great place to live or play in the brisk clean air in the High Peaks Region of the Adirondack Park. We have a rich history of miners, loggers, frontiersmen, and famous guides. Many families have remained and built livelihoods here for almost two centuries.

We have a fantastic school rich with international friends. The corridor boasts its diversity with the flags and names of students who have attended and remain forever-friends. Newcomb Central School offers a great program for advancing students to graduate High School with a two-year jump on their college education.

Newcomb has both Verizon and AT&T Cellular Service and 100% Community Broad Band through SLIC Network Solutions and Frontier Communications.
