The Fenton History Center is offering a variety of walking tours this summer. The newest tour of the Lakeview Avenue neighborhood is premiering Saturday at 1 p.m. What was life like during the heyday of the "most beautiful street in Jamestown?"
Learn about the upper class families that lived on the street, the changes over the years and what makes it the stately streetscape it is today. Participants should arrive by 12:45 at the Lake View Cemetery office lawn at the corner of Lakeview Avenue and Buffalo Streets. The tour is approximately two hours long and will end back at the cemetery office.
The tour leaders are Sam Genco, Lake View Cemetery assistant, superintendent and Fenton History Center trustee; and Robert Black, architect, Habiterra Architecture and Landscape Architecture, PC. Space is limited, and reservations are requested. The fee is $10 for potential members and $5 for Fenton History Center members.
The tour is one of the offerings of the Chautauqua Visitor's Bureau's Chautauqua in June to promote the county's wide variety of learning opportunities. The tours are offered on a rotating basis through September.
