“1960s Nostalgia” Takes Over Fenton For Holiday Season

JAMESTOWN – The Fenton History Center  in Jamestown is taking a break from the ‘norm’ with a 1960s Christmas display this holiday season.

Fenton History Center’s Director Noah Goodling said the center will still display classic favorites like the upside down Christmas tree but wanted to bring a personal exhibit to the center, located at 67 Washington St.

“They’re all vintage trees from the 1940s, fifties and sixties!” said Goodling. “It’s a little bit of childhood Nostalgia.”

Goodling said the Fenton serves as a community hub to cherish the history of our region.

“Our collection are the things from this area that people have given us,” said Goodling. “People come in nearly everyday with artifacts for the center.”

The yearly Christmas Exhibit will open on Black Friday, November 24th from 10 AM to 4 PM.

Paul Leone will be in attendance Friday singing his new Chautauqua Ghost book in addition to the exhibit.

The center is open Monday though Saturday 10 AM to 4 PM. Goodling, a newly instated director, hopes to continue to grow the historical group with new events in 2017.
