TOWN OF ELMA
The Blue Star Memorial dedication is scheduled for May 17, 2014 at 9:00 am.
Welcome to the Town of Elma
-Incorporated in April of 1857-
The Town of Elma was split from the Towns of Aurora and Lancaster. Encompassing 36 square miles with two major waterways, the Buffalo Creek and Cazenovia Creek, Elma sits squarely in the center of Erie County and can safely call itself the Heart of Erie County. Over 11,317 residents call Elma home, as does Iroquois Central School, one of Western New Yorks top rated school systems, and Elma Meadows Golf Course, one of Erie Countys top public courses. Residents enjoy spending time with their family and friends at two of Elma's parks, the Elma Village Green and Creek Road Park. There are also athletic fields, a Senior Center, Town Museum, and Public Library.
Elma has a vibrant business community anchored by large firms like Moog Valve, Steuben Foods, and Servotronics. Its heart is a retail plaza in the center of Town, several restaurants scattered throughout the Town, and many small businesses that provide residents with a multitude of services.
While farming has been the backbone of agriculture, horse farms are becoming more prevalent. Nurseries and greenhouse operations also provide great greenery and color, they also provide the stock for several larger nurseries in the area.
There is a wealth of treasures in Elma, some historic, some educational, and others just plain fun. If you take the time to learn more about Elma, you will find out why Elma is such a great place to live and raise a family.
