Fort Herkimer Church

The Heart of the Mohawk Valley

The Fort Herkimer Church, also known as the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church of German Flatts, is a historic church located in Herkimer County, New York. It was built between 1753 and 1767, it was expanded in 1812. It is a two-story, rectangular grey limestone building. The gable roof is topped by a frame cupola.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.

Fort Herkimer Church is one of the oldest churches in New York State and the oldest building in Herkimer County. It serves as a reminder of days past, having functioned as both a fortress during the French and Indian War and American Revolution as well as a place of worship for valley settlers.
