For sale are six individually offered, incredible riverfront parcels along the beautiful West Branch of the Oswegatchie River. The parcel's river frontage provides an entire suite of river attributes - frothy, cascading falls, plunging pools, shimmering ripples, high granite outcroppings, placid flat water – there's a little bit of everything along this stunning river frontage.
Each parcel also offers various private building sites along the river with no nearby roads, houses, or noise.
The parcels are located in the towns of Fowler, Pitcairn and Edwards, St. Lawrence County, New York. This location is at the foothills of the northwestern Adirondacks along the West Branch of the Oswegatchie River. The West Branch is a major tributary of the Oswegatchie, which flows into the main branch near the hamlet of Talcville. The nearby village of Harrisville (population 670) is a rural community along the Oswegatchie River with a full suite of amenities.
St. Lawrence County is the largest in New York State and is home to the St. Lawrence International Seaway, connecting the Great Lakes with the Atlantic. Gouverneur (population 3,949) is an 11-mile drive to the northwest along the Route 58 corridor, while Canton is a 45-minute drive to the north. Syracuse and Rochester/Albany lie within a two and three-hour drive.
The property has +/-0.9 miles of frontage along Thomlinson Road, a seasonally town-maintained gravel road. No electric power runs along this road.
A 65' wide right-of-way road provides access to the river frontage, which begins on the adjacent Parcel 1, running +/-0.8 miles before crossing the property boundary (see maps for ROW location). Once on the Parcel, the woods road runs 1.2 miles in a southerly direction parallel but east of the river.
The land offers +/-2.1 miles of scenic river frontage. Falls #3 is just a short walk from the access road, including rapids, deep pools, and a sand bar. Downstream, the river runs wide and deep before entering first the long rapids, then Falls #2. The terrain is level to modestly sloping close to the river, with mountainous, hilly ground on most of the remainder.

The average diameters for the three major species are white pine 22.5", sugar maple 16" and black cherry 18". Financial maturity for most sawlog species is 18-24", therefore many of the stands on this Parcel are within 20-25 years of generating considerable income.
