The Village of Deposit, on the county line, is partly within the Town of Sanford (Broome County) and the Town of Deposit (Delaware County). The Broome County portion of Deposit is part of the Binghamton Metropolitan Statistical Area.



The position of the village is at the boundary of White and Indian territory as imposed by the 1763 Fort Stanwix Treaty.
