History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Sherrill was founded in 1916 through a special act of the state legislature. It is unique among cities in New York, because its city charter provides that, for many purposes, it is to be treated as if it were a village, and that the Vernon town government continues to have jurisdiction over the territory of the city. All other cities in New York are independent of town governments.

In 1997, the Oneida tribe purchased land within the city, eventually initiating a dispute about whether they had to pay taxes.
