Our History in Herkimer Spans Seven Decades
Since April 11, 1951, Herkimer has been the home of a prominent public housing authority, as established by the Legislature of New York State, offering a variety of affordable housing units. Until recently, the housing authority was known as the Herkimer Housing Authority, and now, in recognition of beginning a comprehensive modernization of all properties, has been newly branded as Stone Ridge Residences.
Our mission at Stone Ridge Residences is to offer safe, secure, decent affordable housing for families, seniors, veterans and disabled persons who qualify for low income housing. Rent for our apartments is based on a family or individual’s income, and is subsidized accordingly.
