Welcome to Eagle, NY


The town of Eagle is on the southern edge of Wyoming County, bordered to the north by Wethersfield, to the east by Pike, to the south by Allegany County, and to the west by Arcade. The town includes the hamlets of Bliss, Eagle and Eagle Center. Due to a prevailing wind, Eagle is home to the Noble Bliss Windpark, which opened in 2008 and created hundreds of jobs during construction and several long-term jobs for its operation. Dairy farming is big business here. With roughly 1,100 residents, Eagle supposedly has more cows than people.


For groceries, residents head to neighboring Arcade, which has a Top’s Friendly Markets supermarket. For retail shopping, there’s a Walmart in Warsaw, which is about 20 miles northeast of Eagle, and another Walmart is in Springville, which is 21 miles west. 

Recreation & Entertainment

Bliss International Speedway has auto racing for go-kart enthusiasts on a tri-oval asphalt course. The Arcade and Attica Railroad, which offers fall foliage tours and is billed as “the only steam excursion trip in New York state,” is based in neighboring Arcade, which is about seven miles west. Ressler’s Corn Maize also is in Arcade. Rolling Acres Golf and Campground is in Pike, which is nine miles east. Byrncliff Resort and Conference Center, a ski resort, is 20 miles north in Varysburg. Beaver Meadow Family Campground which has an outdoor pool, a fishing pond and other attractions, is in Java, about 15 miles northwest. Beaver Meadow Audubon Center also is in Java.

Transportation & Traffic

Pros & Cons

Eagle is a small, sparsely populated town where outdoor activities are the main attractions. The wind farm offers “clean” energy and is one of the area’s employers. Proximity to Allegany County might also be an attraction.
