You will learn about the city of Johnstown . How it got it name.when it got its name. It is said that it used to be the residence of Sir William Johnson. But there are other historical people that called Johnstown home.

If you are interested in history, they have a lot to tell. They give you the history of Sir William Johnson prior to the tour of his home. His home is in the same set up as if it were really back in his day.

Took the 4th grades of Johnstown School District as a walking field trip. Kids loved to see the grounds and Sir William Johnson's home. Staff/volunteers also set up colonial games for the students to learn about and try.

This building was built in the 1700's. It is in excellent shape. Groups are escorted thru. Interesting to see about the history from back then. I was born and brought up in town, and we got a dose of it in grade school. i guess I didn't appreciate it then as I do now. They also have a small gift... More

We went here for an open house around the Christmas holidays. It was a fun and interesting event.The only lighting was candles and the hosts were dressed in period clothing. They had people singing and playing instruments in one of the parlors. It was educational experience to hear the history of this wonderful building that has been beautifully restored.

Excellent guides give you an introduction to the role of the Mohawk Valley during the Revolutionary War. Superbly restored, Johnson Hall was an important center of British and Loyalist sentiment during the Revolution. Fascinating when you think about Joseph Brant, the Iroquois, the decisions that were made at Johnson Hall.

Lovingly restored. Exquisite attention to detail. Best ever. Sir William would have been proud of the home that looks brand new.
