This week on The Historians Podcast, retired State Supreme Court Justice Robert Best chronicles the history of Johnstown’s 1772 Fulton County Courthouse, the oldest courthouse still in use in New York State. Meredith Best, an art teacher and the judge’s daughter, describes the artwork in a booklet on the courthouse history written by her father, which is scheduled for publication in February.
