Description
Chazy was founded in 1763 by Jean Fromboise. During the Revolution the British forces of Gen. John Burgoyne overran the area, and Fromboise was forced to flee. After the war Fromboise returned to Chazy, where he planted the region's first apple orchard. The McIntosh orchards in Chazy are some of the largest in the world.
Another notable area resident was William H. Miner, a railroad industrialist and philanthropist. One of his gifts to the town is the Miner Institute, an agricultural research center.
