Herkimer County Historical Society is located in the 1884 Suiter Building, a historic home in Herkimer, Herkimer County, New York. It is a 2 12-story, wood frame structure with red pressed brick walls laid in black mortar built in 1884. It features a complex pitched roof of slate with a brick corbelled cornice and terra cotta ornament along the roof edge. There is also an octagonal peaked roof above the corner tower. Built originally as a private home, it was unfinished at the time of its builders death in 1925 and given to the Herkimer County Historical Society who occupied it in 1935.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.

The 1884 Herkimer County Historical Society Suiter Building Museum features exhibits about the county's early settlers and transportation, agriculture, industry and domestic life, and displays about the former Fairfield Academy.

The Historical Society also operates tours of the nearby 1834 Herkimer County Jail, 1873 Herkimer County Courthouse, and the 1834 Herkimer Reformed Church.
