Other Things to NoteLittle Falls was originally settled in 1723 by German Palatine immigrants as a river portage and trading post. By the early 20th century, the settlement had grown into a sizable market town and milling center which attracted new immigrants from across central, eastern, and southern Europe. These historical influences are reflected in the city's enduring architecture and urban form. The architectural diversity of Little Falls belies its small size. The city is characterized by notable examples of the Georgian Colonial, Dutch Colonial, Federal, Norman French, English Tudor, Queen Anne, Arts+Crafts, and Mid-Century Modern historical styles.
Little Falls is the site of the historic Herkimer House. Built by 1764 by Nicholas Herkimer, namesake of Herkimer County and son of prominent German immigrant Johan Jost Herchheimer, it replaced an earlier farmstead dwelling with a fashionable Georgian style mansion. This frontier residence was atypically grand for its time and a unique example of British colonial architecture in the Mohawk Valley. The Central New York region figured importantly in the Revolution and Nicholas Herkimer supported the American cause as a brigadier general in the county militia. A visit to his stately residence offers a glimpse into life on the colonial American frontier.
The Arkell Museum in nearby Canajoharie offers an extensive collection of American paintings, as well as historical exhibits on the settlement and industrial history of the Mohawk River Valley.
