Guy Park

Guy Park

Guy Park, also known as Guy Park State Historic Site, is a house built in 1773 for Guy Johnson. In 1774 the original house was struck by lightning and burnt to the ground. Johnson left the house never to return in 1775 because of the American Revolutionary War. After many years as a tavern, the house has become a historical museum, with exhibits concerning Native Americans in the United States and the Erie Canal. The house is an example of Georgian architecture.
