Go to the official Village of Ilion (Herkimer County) website, and one of the first things you will see is the village motto, “Where tradition is preserved, while progress is achieved.”
For this village of 7,600 people, preserving that tradition will be a big challenge now that a huge chunk of Ilion’s identity is gone. Remington Arms, America’s oldest gun maker, has spent most of its 208-year existence headquartered in Ilion, but as of March 4, the iconic company’s local facility has gone dark.
