Corning, NY is the Most Fun Small Town in the USA! Congratulations to Corning for winning Rand McNally’s Best of the Road 2013 Most Fun contest.
The city of Corning is at the western edge of the town of Corning and in the southeast part of Steuben County. The first settlement in the town of Corning was made near the site of the future city in 1796. The community was set apart from the town as a village in 1848. Corning was incorporated as a city in 1890. As the glass industry developed, Corning became known as the “Crystal City.”
