The Jamestown Post-Journal recently featured an interesting article on Furniture Production in Jamestown. The write-up was presented by our friends at the Fenton History Center and focuses on the Maddox Table Company.
Also included in the article, information on an upcoming class from the Fenton Institute that focuses on antique furniture storage and preservation:
Whether you have Jamestown-made furniture or furniture from elsewhere that you want to continue to enjoy, you can attend The Fenton Institute on Saturday, Jan. 29 from 10 a.m. to noon. This class will give advice on the proper usage, display and storage of your heritage furniture so it will last for many more years and generations. Understanding the construction and the function of the piece can help maintain furniture for years.
The cost is $15 for non-members, $10 for members, or it can be the free elective for certain level memberships. Call the Fenton History Center at 664-6256 for more information or to make reservations.
