Historic Map - Jamestown, NY - 1882

Bird's eye view of the village of Jamestown, Chautauqua County, New York. Drawn by H. Brosius & A. F. Poole. Beck & Pauli, lithographers.

Reproduction bird's-eye view map looking northeast of Jamestown, Chautauqua County, New York, drawn by H. Brosius and A. F. Poole and published by J. J. Stoner in 1882. The city of Jamestown is at the southern end of Chautauqua Lake in Chautauqua County. The town was named after James Prendergast, an early settler who had built the first dam and sawmill there. Furniture making was Jamestown's most prominent industry with local hardwoods being used. The wood's burning also produced pearl ash which was harvested for use in the glassmaking industry. The community produced so much pearl ash it became known as "The Pearl City". In the 1880's, Jamestown was becoming home to so many furniture manufacturers it was dubbed "Furniture Capital of the World".
