City founder James Prendergast and other industrious pioneers were drawn to the outlet of Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York State because of its abundant waterpower and virgin forests. The skills of these settlers, coupled with the area's natural resources, led to the emergence of industrial Jamestown, known worldwide for its diverse manufacture of quality products, including furniture, metal, and textiles. The authors have chosen more than two hundred vintage images based on historic markers for Jamestown. Thorough research and oral histories reveal contributions made by trailblazing immigrants, philanthropic families, diverse ethnic groups, earnest businessmen, and three hometown notables who achieved global fame: Lucille Ball, Roger Tory Peterson, and Robert H. Jackson.

About the Author:

In Jamestown, Kathleen Crocker and Jane Currie pay homage to the sole city on Chautauqua Lake. Crocker, a retired English teacher, has managed the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle at the Chautauqua Institution for twelve years. Currie is a professional photographer and business owner in Dewittville on the shore of Chautauqua Lake. Jamestown complements their previous Arcadia publications on the region, Chautauqua Institution: 1874-1974 and Chautauqua Lake Region.
