Johnson Hall - 1763
Johnstown

? ? Sir William Johnson (1715-1774), Indian trader, statesman,diplomat and Colonial Empire Builder, in 1763 built Johnson Hall, the center of his estate and the scene of many Indian conferences.

? ? Coming from Ireland in 1738, Johnson traded with the Indians and acquired great influence over them. After defeating the French at Lake George in 1755, he was created a baronet and made Superintendent of Indian Affairs for the northern Colonies. In 1766 he ended the Pontiac uprising, and in 1768 negotiated the Treaty of Fort Stanwix.

? ? At Johnstown, which he founded and colonized, Johnson Hall stands as a monument to his constructive achievement.
