Welcome – About the Village of Schoharie
The Historic Village of Schoharie, New York, located in Upstate New York – is nestled between Albany, and to the west, the Catskill Mountains to the southwest, and the Adirondack Mountains to the northeast.
Once part of the Iroquois Nation, German Palatine Immigrants settled in the Schoharie Valley in the early 1700s, when much of present day Schoharie County was still the frontier. A village, or dorf, named Brunnen Dorf (loosely translated to Fountain Town) was established on the site of the current village of Schoharie in 1712 near an abundant spring. The fact that the original village of Schoharie still endures is proof of the fortitude of the early Palatine settlers and their descendants, and of the bountiful gifts of the Schoharie Creek flowing through the valley. (In 2012 the village celebrated its 300th Anniversary).
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for September 22, 2016 at 7:30 PM for a

The Schoharie Valley and Schoharie Creek
Through the verdant and fertile valley flow the waters of the Schoharie Creek that begins in the Catskills and flows north to meet the Mohawk River. The Creek travels a distance of 83 miles and has a watershed of 947 square miles. For centuries the Creek and its watershed have continued to bring fertile soil and life giving water to the generations of farmers in the valley.
