It is part of the Elmira Metropolitan Statistical Area.HistoryThe region was destroyed by the Sullivan Expedition on August 13, 1779, which fought at the Battle of Newtown, just west of the current town of Chemung.The first clear record of settlement dates to about 1786.The town of Chemung was established in 1788 as the original town in the region.
