Massena is a town in St. Lawrence County, New York, United States. Massena is located on the northern Canadian border of the county. The population was 12,883 at the 2010 census. The town of Massena contains a village also named Massena. The town and its village are named after André Masséna, a general and Marshal of France during the Napoleonic Wars.HistoryThe town was first settled circa 1792 by French lumberjacks. Unlike much of northern New York, Massena was not completely in the Macomb's Purchase. Massena was one of the first towns of the county and was incorporated with the county in 1802. The town is named after one of Napoleon's field marshals, André Masséna, who commanded around that time.The town suffered natural disasters in 1944 (earthquake) and in 1998 (ice storm).EconomyThe economy of early Massena was partly based on health spas, but the modern town is involved in power production, aluminum production at ALCOA, and the commerce of the St. Lawrence Seaway.
