Old Fort Johnson is the original limestone house built by Sir William Johnson, Superintendent of Indian Affairs and hero at the Battles of Lake George and Fort Niagara. The Fort was home to William, Catherine Wisenberg, Molly Brant, John Johnson and family throughout the French & Indian War.
The 18th century privy at Fort Johnson is one of only a handful of similar buildings still remaining in the United. States. It is a very high style structure with an 'ogee' roof and interior paneling that matches paneling inside the Fort.
