Through the Fenton History Center's walking tour Saturday at 1 p.m., participants can learn about the original industry in Jamestown. The tour will start at the Fenton History Center, 67 Washington St., Jamestown.
The tour is about the industrial area of downtown Jamestown by the Chadakoin River. Walkers will learn about the woolen mills, the railroad, the sawmills and the people who made it happen. Fenton trustee Clarence Carlson will lead the tour, which will begin and end at the Fenton History Center parking lot. The tour is approximately two hours long.
The fee is $10 for potential members and $5 for Fenton History Center members. The other tours offered through the summer are of the Southside of Jamestown, the downtown and the Lakeview Avenue neighborhood. They are offered each Saturday afternoon through the end of September. The tour scheduled for June 30 will be suspended because the Fenton is holding a fundraiser, Finding Jamestown, at that time. The fundraiser is a clue-based scavenger hunt around the downtown area.
