JAMESTOWN – The City of Jamestown’s Gateway Center was nominated this week to be listed on New York State’s Registers of Historic Places.
In total, a dozen historic locations around the state were nominated for the listing on the State and National Registers.
State officials say the listing can provide owners with grants and tax credits to support rehabilitation projects.
Originally the site of Empire Worsted Mills, the Gateway Center currently houses multiple groups, including the St. Susan Center, Community Helping Hands and Mental Health Association.
At the time, hundreds of people worked at Empire Worsted Mills during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The mills closed in 1955.
