The Drumm House

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

This is one of the oldest buildings still standing today, built by Sir William Johnson for his first school teacher, Edward Wall, as the first public school west of the Hudson.

Teacher Wall was of Irish descent and reportedly a very stern teacher. Drumm House was one of the first six buildings built by Sir William, with each house thirty feet wide and eighteen to twenty feet deep. They were one and a half stories high, with two square rooms on the floor, and all painted yellow. The house actually stands on the site of the first Episcopal Church and has been restored to its original design. Located at the intersection of Green and William Streets, it belongs to the Johnstown Historical Society, and their careful research in restoring details gives visitors a valuable picture of 1700s Johnstown life.
