About GHC

Our Mission
To provide clean, safe, affordable apartment homes that offer a quality living experience for those who live and work in the communities we serve.


Gough Holding Corporation is a regionally recognized property manager that provides exceptional residential housing options throughout the Southern Tier of New York State. We are a family owned and operated business, instilling our values of respect and honesty into everything we do and remembering to always give back to the community that has been so great to us.

Our story began in 1964 when John and Ellie Gough, with the help of several friends and family members, courageously purchased the first duplex for the business. Over the past 50 years, Gough Holding Corporation has been able to endure numerous struggles including the Flood of 1972, the closing of various large employers and other challenging times. We have also enjoyed watching our community grow through the expansion of well respected local banks, the strength of several regional manufacturers and also the never ending growth of shopping centers, restaurants and hotels. 

Thanks to the great support of our stockholders, employees and partners we currently own and manage over 900 units located throughout 8 different municipalities in the Southern Tier. 

Our success originates from thoughtfully conceived developments, careful planning, hands-on management, quality construction and astute marketing. The true strength of our organization today lies with the dedicated employees and management team who constantly strive every day to make our company, our buildings and our grounds the best that they possibly can be.
