JAMESTOWN – The future of Jamestown’s Arcade Building will be discussed this week during a meeting at St. Luke Episcopal Church.

On Thursday, New York’s Preservation League will hold a session providing details about a total of seven historic sites the group is trying to save.

Led by the league’s manager of technical and grant programs, Frances Stern, and Preservation Buffalo Niagara preservation services director, Christiana Limniatis, the duo will discuss strategies to preserve historic buildings.

The site was previously added to the group’s ‘Seven to Save’ program, that aims to avert demolition, develop plans for reuse, secure landmark designation and foster public awareness of historic properties.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at St. Luke Episcopal Church in Downtown Jamestown.

Previously, the Arcade Building caught fire in June 2017. An adjacent building was demolished this year after a city building inspector deemed the lot unsafe.
