Nelliston was one of the first communities in the Mohawk Valley to form a historic district and place the residences of Prospect Street and Water Street on the National Register. Today the village survives as a bedroom community with a handful of retail businesses.
START YOUR VISIT at the Palatine Cheese retail store on East Main Street. Award-winning cheese and cheese products are made right on the premises. Across the street is the Freihofer’s Baking Company outlet store with great deals on freshly baked products. In the Fall, visit the Pavlus Orchard (about a mile out of town on Hickory Hill Road) for an excellent selection of Mohawk Valley grown apples and cider.
