Northville is a picturesque rural community located on the Great Sacandaga Lake in the southern foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. Albany, the State Capitol, is 65 miles to the southeast, while Saratoga Springs and Glens Falls are approximately 50 miles distant. The area is easily reached via the NYS Thruway (Exits 27 and 28) and NYS Routes 30 and 30A.

The population of the village is approximately 1,100, with a similar number of residents in the surrounding township of Northampton. Seasonal residents and vacationers more than double the area's population during the summer months.

Recreational opportunities abound during all seasons of the year. The Great Sacandaga Lake and numerous streams in the Sacandaga Basin provide opportunities for fishing and other water sports. Forested uplands provide hiking, cross-country ski trails and hunting. Sacandaga Golf Course, a nine-hole course, is located in Sacandaga Park. Northville is the southern terminus of the Northville-Lake Placid Trail, a 133 mile trail that traverses the Adirondack Park north to south and is maintained by the Adirondack Club. Nearby on the Great Sacandaga is a Municipal Beach, a State Boat Launch and the Northampton Beach Campsite operated by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.

Village and area businesses provide needed goods and services. Larger communities such as Amsterdam, Gloversville and Johnstown, are less than a forty-five minute drive away.

Major industries and occupations are largely related to forestry and tourism.  A district office of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, employing 30-35 persons, is located in the village. The Northville Central School District employs approximately 90 persons. Many area residents commute to employment in other communities. The General Electric plant in Schenectady is also a major area employer.
