Herman is a village in Washington County, Nebraska, United States. The population was 310 at the 2000 census.
On July 13, 1899, Herman was struck by a tornado that killed or maimed over fifty people.
In the early 1870s, the Bailey and Burdic pioneer families settled in northern Washington County. As the area started to grow, railroad tracks were laid from Omaha. Aboard the first train was a conductor named Samuel Hermann.
