Chemung County is abundant with rolling hills and glorious open spaces punctuated by the serpentine Chemung River. Mark Twain, renowned author, and world-traveler summered in Elmira for more than 20 years. Perched high above the valley, Twain penned his literary classics surrounded by the place he described as a “foretaste of heaven”.
