World War II touched every family on every street in every town in America. Jamestown and the surrounding communities were no exception. Many families were permanently transformed by the war. There were hundreds of Chautauqua County men and woman who enlisted, and many who lost their lives. World War II was fought in thousands of places all over the world. It was fought with guns and bombs, words and strategies, and also by the American people... working, saving, trusting, sacrificing, and hoping. The RHJC's new exhibit, A Hometown During War: 1941-1945, will tell the story of our community and how its citizens experienced the war.
The Robert H. Jackson Center is honored to display A Hometown During War: 1941-1945. The exhibit features photos, letters, posters, and memorabilia depicting life during World War II in Chautauqua County. There has been an outpouring of support from people in our community who have donated hundreds of artifacts related to the exhibit. Many of these items will be on display.
The Center is located at 305 East Fourth Street, Jamestown, NY. Tours are available from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., Mon. - Fri. and from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Sat.
