Enchanted Mountains

Why promote Cattaraugus County as the Enchanted Mountains?

The name originated in this region of New York many decades ago (possibly by Yum Yum Anderson). If you grew up in the country here, then you'll know of the beautiful views that we may take for granted at times. We know that we don't have the mountains of the Adirondacks or the Rocky Mountains, but we have rolling foot hills of the Appalachian Mountains.

Using the Enchanted Mountains name

We love it when people use the name "Enchanted Mountains". People say we're in the Enchanted Mountains. For your use online, here are some logos and badges for the EM.
