Union Hall Inn

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

Union Hall Inn is a famous post-Revolutionary tavern erected in 1798 by Captain Jean Batiste Vaumane de Font Claire, former officer in the French Army under Louis XVI.

Tradition says it was in this house that Nicholas Stoner, a noted soldier and hunter, killed an Indian to avenge his father's death. It was also the favorite Inn of Joseph Bonaparte, brother of Napoleon, who came to Johnstown to race his horse. Easy to find, follow Route 30A to Route 67W to downtown Johnstown. The Union Hall Inn is on the right next to the Sir William Johnson Statue, just before the intersection of Routes 67 and 29, at 2 Union Place.
