Hey, did you hear about this? I'm not exactly the Better Homes & Gardens type, myself, but this announcement caught my eye for local history:
The Johnstown City Historic Architecture Tour will take place Saturday, Sept.27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A limited number of tickets for the event are still available at the Johnstown Public Library (762-8317) and the Fulton County Regional Chamber of Commerce (725-0641). Ticket price per person is $25.
Eight private homes and as many public sites will be open for the tour. The homes include:
10 No. Perry St. - Jonathan and Tara Sweet
This home was featured on the HGTV program “Rezoned." This longtime commercial property has been beautifully transformed to include a private residence for the Sweets on the top floors.
107 S. William St. – Roderick and Chloe Correll
This Victorian home with vestiges of Colonial architecture was completed in 1876. James P. Argersinger had the privilege of owning it for many years.
101 S. William St. – Morris and Wendy Evans
This 13-room Victorian was first built by Richard J. Evans and remains in the family to this day. The exterior and much of the interior remain virtually unchanged.
113 S. William St. – Steve and Kate VanArnam
This is a classic Greek Revival home, built in 1764. It was occupied by the British during the Revolutionary war and original logs dating to that time serve as roof rafters.
606 S. William St. – Joe and Lori Salamack
Constructed in 1907, this Arts and Craft style home was designed by Lim Kinne of Utica, NY.
400 S. Melcher St. – Brian and Anita Hanaburgh
Built in 1888, this Victorian home was originally built for Judge Philip Anabel. In 1932 it was redesigned to include a Colonial style center hall.
100 S. Market St. – Ellen Panero
Prominent lawyer Benjamin Chamberlain had this grand brick Victorian constructed in 1816. Later the home of the noted Frothingham family, it is on the National Registry of Historic Sites.
2 E. State Street – Alexandra Higgins
This “Shotgun” style home was built c. 1763 and is one of the oldest homes in Johnstown.
In addition to these private homes, other historic sites will be open for touring. They include Knox Mansion, Fulton County Courthouse, St. John’s Episcopal Church, Johnson Hall, Johnstown Historical Society, Willing Helpers Home for Women, First Presbyterian Church, James Burke’s Inn (Home of the Daughters of the American Revolution), Drumm House and the Colonial Cemetery.
