Lecture Saturday in Johnstown
JOHNSTOWN – Johnson Hall State Historic Site’s 250th Anniversary Lecture Series, marking the building of the Johnson Hall estate, continues Saturday at 11 a.m.
Gayle Ann Livecchia will present “Colonial Johnstown, According to the Daybook of Robert Adems, Sir William Johnson’s Bookkeeper.”
Livecchia has done extensive research on Adems, a news release said, who also worked for Sir John Johnson following Sir William’s death.
“By examining Adems’ meticulous record-keeping, a picture emerges providing insight into the items stocked in the frontier store and the customers from all social classes,” the release said.
The lecture will be held in the East Stonehouse, where seating will be limited. Refreshments will be available after the lecture.
