Blenheim lies in the southern portion of picturesque Schoharie Valley in Schoharie County. Surrounded by the towns of Gilboa, Fulton, Summit and Jefferson. Its rich cultural heritage is strengthened by an awareness of the blended values of a small town.
Schoharie Creek flows north along the eastern edge of the town as a wide stream with steep banks on either side. The hamlet of North Blenheim is hugged by a large bend in the Schoharie Creek.
