Elmira has a rich history as well. Once territory of the Iroquois Confederation, the town was pivotal in the growth of American transportation. Its location along the Chemung River allowed its shipping industry to fluorish as steamboats became the shipping vehicle of choice for tycoons across the country. However, Elmira's train stations again allowed the city to remain influential as shippers moved away from boats. Today, manufacturing is Elmira's most prominent sector, with some of America's largest companies still running operational plants within city limits.
