Take a virtual tour of the 2011 Summer Exhibit
Building History. The Society's Museum building was originally built in 1886 as the town's one-room schoolhouse. From 1898 to 1971 the building was the town's library. In 1971 the Society leased it for use as its museum. In 2008 the interior of the building was refurbished, elements of the original schoolhouse were restored, and insulation, heating and AC were installed. Also new steps, handicapped access and new landscaping were completed.
Open: Mid-June though mid-October.
Hours: Wednesday through Sunday 1 to 4 p.m from June 17 through Labor Day, weekends through Columbus Day, and by appointment.
Exhibits: Each year a new exhibit is created and displayed in the Museum. The 2012 exhibit, The Jamestown Historical Society: the first 100 years, will open June 17, 2012. The exhibit is part of the society's year-long celebration of the founding of the Jamestown Historical Society.
Volunteering: The Society welcomes anyone intersted in being a docent, or just greeting our summer visitors.
