100 S William St, Johnstown, NY 12095

Map: Street









This is an old victorian with so much character and appeal. Lot of natural wood work and hardwood floors - large rooms. Major work has been done like water lines to street and new sewer line to street. Front walks will be replaced when weather permitting. One full bath up needs finishing - totally rotted floor has been replaced.

    This house. The house next door. The house next to that.

    This is an old house neighborhood!

    Looks like a bathroom and kitchen gut job again for me but the rest of the house is spectacular.

    Once again, poor pictures of stained glass windows. Shameful I must say.

    The woodwork, the wood ceilings, the sliding doors, the windows, the fretwork… its all wonderful.

      Right? Its a Queen Anne Dream. Especially the blue one. See that giant carriage House?

    The booming glove industry in Johnstown (and nearby Gloversville) is responsible for most of the fine late Victorian houses there – we’ve seen a few on OHD. The Northrup family owned a large factory and a few houses in the neighborhood. This house was owned by widow Eliza Frances Northrup (1846-1914), who lived here with son James and an Irish servant. Directory listings show the Northrups living here by 1890, suggesting the home was commissioned by John C. Northrup before his untimely death in 1889.

    The interior of this is just yummy delicious and fulfills all my Victorian fantasies except the kitchen and bath which could be remedied. I had to look at the street view based on the previous comments and wow, what a great neighborhood. Good job, Johnstown!

    Are the tiles around the fireplace Rookwood?

    This is my father’s hometown. I grew up visiting there a million times. Very very beautiful houses and an area rich in history but a very economically depressed area. He sold his childhood home for less than $30k 🙁

    Whoa! This whole immediate area is packed with drop dead gorgeous homes. What spectacular details. I love the wood clad ceilings. It’s only the kitchen that needs to be rushed to the dumpster. This place is a keeper.

      And the bathroom. Don’t forget the bathroom into the dumpster.
      This house is a show piece. The wood ceilings and stained glass are amazing.
      I keep coming back to this to look at the pictures.

    Love those sunflower tiles on the fireplace surround.

    When I saw this house I knew it was for me. No wonder! I grew up in Gloversville which is right next door! Most of the upscale areas have homes like this. I was in awe every time I was in one. And recently I found out that my great grandfather was the Glove Workers Union Leader. There is always something new to learn about the history of this area. Oh, and Johnstown is named after my ancestor Sir William Johnson!
