The Fenton History Center’s last walking tour of the year is Saturday. It is of the Lakeview Avenue neighborhood, and begins at 1 p.m. Participants will learn what life was like during the heyday of the “most beautiful street in Jamestown,” about upper class families who lived on the street, the changes over the years and what makes it the stately streetscape it is today. Guests are asked to arrive by 12:45 p.m. at the Lake View Cemetery office lawn, corner of Lakeview Avenue and Buffalo Street. The tour is approximately two hours long and will end back at the cemetery office. The tour leaders are Sam Genco, Lake View Cemetery superintendent and Fenton History Center trustee, and Robert Black, architect, Clark Patterson Lee Design Associates, formerly Habiterra Architecture. The fee is $10 for potential members and $5 for Fenton History Center members. Children up to age 18 are free with a paying adult – limit of two children per adult.
