This is the reproduced interior of the mansion known as Guy Park, which was built by Sir William Johnson for his daughter and nephew/son-in-law, Guy Johnson. The original was a wooden structure, built around 1766, but it was struck by lightening and burned in 1773. This rebuilt stone mansion, still by the Hudson in Amsterdam, N.Y., was left behind when the couple fled to Canada with other Loyalists after the Revolutionary War. It was purchased by the state in 1907. This image was created to record the historic site activities of the New York State Conservation Department.
