Herkimer is a village in Herkimer County, New York on the northern banks of the Mohawk River. European settlers began to arrive in the area that would become Herkimer during the early 18th century. Originally, the new community near the Mohawk River was called Burnetsfield in honor of the governor at the time. In 1725, the Burnetsfield Patent gave 100-acre lots to 90 families in the area. The settlement was attacked twice during the French and Indian War and multiple times during the Revolutionary War. In 1788, a new township named Herkimer was established in the area, and in 1791, it was named the county seat. By 1797, the village of Herkimer had a population of approximately 250, and it was officially incorporated in 1807.

As of 2023, the population of Herkimer is approximately 7,000, and the city is mainly known as the home of the famed Herkimer Diamond Mines.

Herkimer also contains many scenic parks worth exploring, like Myers Park, where you can enjoy a picnic and listen to live music.
