Erving

 

The town of Erving is comprised of three villages: Erving Center, Farley, and Ervingside. It is situated along the Millers River and Route 2 (Mohawk Trail) goes through the middle of town.  Erving is known for its low taxes and its convenient location makes it ideal for those who need to travel to the eastern part of the state. 

The French King Bridge connects Erving to the town of Gill and named “The Most Beautiful Steel Bridge” by the American Institute of Steel Construction. The bridge is a popular tourist spot because besides its own beauty, it offers scenic views of the river and the foliage in autumn.

Erving’s large supply of timber and waterpower led to the production of many wood and wood-based products. Today, the Erving Paper Mill still exists, and employs over 100 people.
