Photo: Johnstown Court House, 1772.

This ancient structure was built by Sir William Johnson in 1772, as the Tryon County Court House. It is now the Fulton County Court House and is the only Colonial Court House now standing and used as such in New York State — and probably one of very few in the United States. Many distinguished jurists have appeared in this historic building, which still uses a bar of bent iron as a bell. (Photo by H. V. Bush, Canajoharie.)
