Herkimer

Herkimer is a village in Herkimer County, New York, United States, about 13 miles (21 km) southeast of Utica. As of the 2010 census, it had a population of 7,743 people. The village is named after the Herkimers, Palatine German immigrants who settled in this area in 1723. The most notable one was Nicholas Herkimer, a general of the Tryon County militia, who died from wounds received at the Battle of Oriskany in the American Revolutionary War.

The village is located within the Town of Herkimer, and together they are referred to as "The Herkimers". In fact, the citizens of the village are served by three political entities of the same name: the village of Herkimer, the town of Herkimer and the county of Herkimer. (Citizens of New York County share a similar distinction.)

The village is the county seat for the county of Herkimer.

Herkimer County Community College, located in the northwest part of the village, was founded in 1966 by the Herkimer County Board of Supervisors.

On March 13, 2013, Herkimer was the center of deadly gun attacks believed to have been committed by 64-year-old Kurt Myers. Two people were shot dead at Gaffey's Fast Lube and Car Wash in Herkimer at around 9:30am; shortly afterwards two more people were shot dead at a local barbershop in Mohawk, NY. Police cornered Myers, suspected of the killings, on North Main Street in Herkimer at 8:15 on 14 March; there was a shoot-out in which he was killed.
