Johnson Hall State Historic Site

Johnstown, New York

This was the estate of William Johnson, the largest single landowner and most influential individual in the settlement of the Mohawk Valley. Begun in 1763, Johnson Hall became the center of an estate designed to further both settlement and Johnson's control of his lands. At its height, the estate included a mill, blacksmith shop, Indian store, barns, servants quarters and various other buildings, not to mention the grand Georgian-style mansion. The estate was confiscated by the state in 1779 after Johnson's son, a Loyalist, fled to Canada during the Revolution. Johnson Hall remained a private residence until 1906, when it was acquired by the state as a historic site. Partially equipped for handicapped access - call for details. Reenactments during special events.
