Inscription
New York State purchased Johnson Hall in 1906. At that time, after almost 150 years of changing ownership, only 20 acres remained intact of the original 700+ acre property.The Johnstown Historical Society, trustee of Johnson Hall in the early years of State ownership, posted bids in 1926 for a landscape design for the Hall's then desolate park grounds. A proposed "General Plan" established a figure 8 layout of paths and benches circling open lawns. This early twentieth century landscape has been restored to allow visitors to once again enjoy a stroll through a portion of the Johnson Hall's grounds.
