Herkimer County is in central New York State, northwest of Albany, and east of Syracuse. The northern part of the county is in the Adirondack Park. The Mohawk River flows across the south part of the county.

Not only is Herkimer County the doorway to the Adirondacks, but the historic Erie Canal flows through Southern Herkimer County and just to the north, one can prospect for our renowned Herkimer diamonds.
