The photos below were sent in by Jerry Reed, coordinator of our sister site, the Otsego County GenWeb Page. Although some of these specific houses are no longer in existence, or have been modified or modernized, they are representative of the variety of 19th and early 20th century family homes built throughout Herkimer and Montgomery Counties. More residential photos similar to Photo #3 will be added to this section every few weeks.
