Looking to the Future
Canajoharie is a quaint village located in the Town of Canajoharie in Montgomery County, New York. Centrally located in the Mohawk Valley, the village is about 40 minutes the City of Utica (west) and 20 minutes to the City of Amsterdam (east) and less than an hour’s drive to NY’s capital, Albany.
The scenic Mohawk River runs along the north of Canajoharie, and the neighboring town of Palantine Bridge sits directly across the river. Like most towns and villages, The Erie Canal and the Mohawk River were a central part of commerce in the region in early industrial years. Beech-nut played a major role in Canajoharie throughout most of it’s history.
The Exit 29 Project has the potential to revitalize Canajoharie and the surrounding area. The 26.9 acre former Beech-Nut facility has the potential to be transformed by taking advantage of the scenic location, access to key transportation and available local and regional workforce.
