Historic St. John's Episcopal Church

Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 30A, near Johnstown in Fulton County

Historic St. John's Episcopal Church, in downtown Johnstown, is located between the scenic Mohawk Valley and beautiful Adirondack Mountains.

The very first church stood on Green Street on the site of the Drumm House and was built by Sir William Johnson in 1760. Since the congregation quickly outgrew that structure, a second larger stone church was built on the current site. The entrance faced north and Sir William's remains were buried behind the altar. When fire destroyed that building in 1826, the current beautiful church was designed and built. It was decided to move the entryway to face east. That change put Sir William's remains outside of the edifice and a special marker now denotes his actual burial site for all to visit. Located at 1 North Market Street, Johnstown, and reachable by phone at 518-762-9210.
