JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – A new Jamestown welcome sign is now on display on the city’s northern entrance.
The project 25 years in the making was made possible due to donations form the Jamestown Rotary Club.
Totaling $63,000 dollars for the construction of the sign, it was partially funded by the Rotary Club, which raised $25,000 dollars towards the project, with the rest coming in through donations.
The design focuses on aspects of the Pearl City, using slopes to represent the river and materials like old railroad ties, wood from the Grand Cathedral Oaks, and the famous Jamestown bricks.
Construction of the Sign started in Fall of 2022.
