Chazy lies in the northeast corner of New York State on the shore of Lake Champlain. Founded in 1666 and chartered in 1804, it is blessed with a rich and colorful history, beautiful landscapes, and hardworking people. This community is known for its apples, maple syrup, blueberries, and limestone. Chazy portrays life in the hamlets of Ingraham, Chazy, West Chazy, Chazy Landing, Sciota, and Suckortown. Included are Harriet Clark, who tried to learn how to drive by Monday so that she could teach at West Chazy's one-room schoolhouse; the Lucia children of Suckortown, who watched the police shoot at a rumrunner; and the horse Pansy, who tangled with a wayward pig on the Laramie family farm.
Chazy is a community project celebrating the two hundredth anniversary of the town's founding. It is a memoir that shares wonderful stories and photographs from the 1880s to the 1950s, treasures accumulated by the office of the town historian, now occupied by author Christina M. Trombly. The book is presented as a tribute to the people of Chazy, past, present, and future.
