This is one of the older homes, in the Fish House Settlement, still existing today Among other things, Alexander St. John was a surveyor and engineer. He is credited by some historians as having the village and town of St. Johnsville named after him. He became one of the town's leading citizens and is buried in the Fish House Cemetery, not far from his old home. This old home in Fish House, like others here, should be preserved; they are some of the oldest homes in our country.
