Fenton History Center

Fenton History Center

Thinking Outside the Square took the Victorian-era surroundings of theĀ Fenton Mansion and channeled it into the Orientation Room for the Fenton History Center in Jamestown, NY. A timeline built into a custom-made piece of furniture blends together interpretation and local history. A locally-made historic rifle placed atop the orientation desk brings the museum’s collection into the space. Interpretation about the Fenton Family, the mansion, and Jamestown history invites visitors to learn about their surroundings via two touch-screen elements that encourage interaction.
