Jamestown Historical Society

Preview Party of Museum Exhibit 2017

Members who attended the Preview Party of the new Museum Exhibit “Jamestown: Lost and Found” curated by Jim Buttrick, assisted by Rosemary Enright were extremely excited and enthusiastic about the exhibit.  Seeing long-ago pictures taken from the archives matched with photographs taken recently by Jim Buttrick generated lots of “Oh I remember that” and “I didn’t know that”.

Don’t forget that the Museum will now be open featuring the new 2017 Museum Exhibit “Jamestown: Lost and Found”.

Museum hours are 1 to 4 PM,  Wednesdays through Sundays and holidays through Labor Day and Saturdays and Sundays and holidays through Columbus Day, October 9th.
