Johnson Hall State Historic Site

Search Johnstown New York

A Georgian house of wood made to look like stone, Johnson Hall became the nucleus of a working estate designed to encourage settlement and further Johnson's control of his lands. A mill, blacksmith shop, Indian store, barns, and other necessary buildings were added, as well as housing for servants. The 1763 mansion was a focal point for American Indian trade in pre-revolutionary days as emphasized by the hall's diorama and period displays. Picnic area and guided tours available.
