Explore Herkimer, New York, in an RVshare RV Rental

Herkimer has a population of 7,743 and is a village on the north side of the Mohawk River. The town of Herkimer received its name by mistake. Dr. William Petry was part of the New York State Legislature and was responsible for erecting new towns in what was then Montgomery County in 1788. He told the Honorable Simeon DeWitt, a surveyor-General of the State of New York, that Herkimer was on the left and German Flatts was on the right. Dewitt thought Dr. Petry was referring to the right and left banks of the Mohawk, and he wrote the names of the towns in reverse order. The name of Herkimer was supposed to be for the territory south of the river where the historic Herkimer family first settled and where the Herkimer Home is today.
