Johnson Street

If you're visiting Kingston, Ontario, you will likely encounter Johnson Street, running all the way from the waterfront to Sir John A. Macdonald Blvd. The street is named for Sir John Johnson, George's older stepbrother, who owned a large piece of property in this colonial town, though he rarely (if ever) stayed there. The reason that Sydenham Street is interrupted for a block because Sir John's estate used to be in the middle it.

All about George

This website is about George Johnson, part Mohawk, part white, and for a brief time, barely in his teens, a Mohawk warrior in the American War of Independence.
