“home of Sir William Johnson”

Old Fort Johnson is the original 1749 limestone house, on the north bank of the Mohawk River, New York Colony, built by Sir William Johnson, (Warragh-i-ya-gey), Superintendent of Indian Affairs and hero at the Battles of Lake George and Fort Niagara. 
The Old Fort was home to William, Catherine Wisenberg, Molly Brant, John Johnson and family throughout the French & Indian War. 

 Photographs and line drawings of the Old Fort can be studied at the 
Historic American Buildings Survey website. 

 Today the Old Fort is a museum and more. Here visitors can steep themselves in the social, cultural, military and industrial past of the Mohawk Valley. And though the Old Fort has been the setting for many historical books, no fiction could be as interesting as the real story of Old Fort Johnson, presented and preserved here for all to enjoy.
