Fulton County Courthouse, originally known as Tryon County Courthouse, is a historic courthouse building located at Johnstown in Fulton County, New York. It was built in 1772–1773 and is a Late Georgian style public building. It is a 1 12-story brick structure, five bays wide and three bays deep. It features a bellcast gable roof with a cupola dating to the late 18th or early 19th century. Sir William Johnson, 1st Baronet (1715–1774) contributed £500 toward the construction of the building.[2] It is the oldest existing Court House in the State of New York and one of the oldest in the Nation still being used as a Court House today.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.[1]
