JAMESTOWN – A historic mansion turned museum in Jamestown is getting in the holiday spirit.

The Fenton History Center recently launched its yearly Christmas exhibit.

Center Director Noah Goodling says this year’s theme is based off Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ and fits in well with the historic building.

“We want to make sure that we get that industrial, gritty, Victorian sentiment to it,” said Goodling. “It also has a lot of the lightheartedness that you know and love from the story ‘A Christmas Carol;’ Tiny Tim and his crutch; Ebenezer Scrooge; the three ghosts, you will be able to see a lot of scenes from that classic story.”

Tonight, the center is hosting a performance of the classic tale at 7 p.m. at its 67 Washington St location.

Goodling says the exhibit will be on display through mid-January. The center is open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Fenton History Center is named in honor of Reuban Fenton, a Frewsburg native and the 22nd Governor of New York State, who lived in the home with his family in the 1800s.
