2022 Summer Exhibit Opening Reception

The 2022 Jamestown Museum opening reception for the exhibit titled The Jamestown Museum at Fifty: A Retrospective was held Friday, June 17, 2022. Early evening showers and downpour was not enough to dampen the spirits of JHS members and guests who attended the event. The exhibit was a look back at the efforts of JHS volunteers who have participated in creating a new exhibit each summer that reflect life in Jamestown over a span of fifty years.

Visit the Town Hall to see the entire exhibit and please consider donating your Jamestown memorabilia to Jamestown Historical Society, contact info@jamestownhistoricalsociety.org.
