Fenton History Center

67 Washington Street / Jamestown NY 14701 / 716.664.6256

Located in the landmark mansion of Reuben E. Fenton (Governor of New York, 1865-1869), the Fenton History Center tells the story of Jamestown’s rich history through exhibits and displays about local industries, transportation, notable events, and famous residents. The building itself is an outstanding example of Italianate residential architecture, with rooms that reveal the tastes and lifestyles of 19th century Jamestown. 
 A wide range of books, postcards and other items of local interest can be found in the museum gift shop. At the Center’s Hall House, adjacent to the Fenton mansion, visitors will find archives for genealogical and historical research.
