Welcome to Chili, NY


Covering some forty square miles, Chili is a town of contradictions. Much of Chili is suburban in nature, with densely populated areas; and some is rural, with a clear, agricultural feel. Divided by Black Creek, the region sports many town parks, museums, a golf course, boat launches, and more. Roberts Wesleyan College is in North Chili, providing plenty of cultural and theatrical events. Chili Center is the most urbanized section of town while South Chili (near the NYS Thruway) is quite rural with farmland still in abundance.
