location of Thurman on google maps

Thurman is a small rural town with year-round residential and seasonal properties surrounded by both publicly and privately-owned forestland. There is a sense of remoteness, even though it is just minutes from the stores, services and attractions in Warrensburg, Lake George and Glens Falls and the Gore Mountain region. Residents are a congenial mix of those whose family roots reach deep in Thurman history, and those from other places who recognize how special Thurman is and adopt it as “home”.
