Fredonia Things to Do

    This small museum is another of those hometown sites run by the local historical society. There are clothes and furniture and plates and glasses that belonged to "famous" personages of Fredonia and nearby hamlets. The walls are covered with photos and paintings of local events and personages that mean little to anyone who is not familiar with local lore.
    They have a children's room and a genealogy room for those people who might have ties to Fredonia natives.

    I am a sucker for anything free. So we spent a half-hour rummaging through Fredonia history.

    popular sub sandwich shop for the college crowd.
    counter service, no frills.
    good selection of sandwich fillers (ham, beef, tuna, provolone) on soft roll for a reasonable price. what more can a preppie ask for?

    The crime stats for Fredonia indicate it is in the top 20% of safe towns in New York. Also there are only 3 sex offenders in the area. During the summer the crime stats improve because the misdemeanors logged in during the college season (parties, pranks) are greatly reduced.

    You can feel safe walking around the main streets of Fredonia at any reasonable hour.
    Use common sense and go with a friend if you must go late at night; lock doors of your car; leave valuables back at the motel safebox.

    Fredonians are generally friendly and helpful if you get lost or need information.

    Have a happy and safe visit.

Fredonia Off The Beaten Path

    There are some nice architectural features about the old buildings in downtown Fredonia.

    Start at the center of town: at the corner of Main Street and Temple Street. Here you see a unique arrangement of mirror image parks. Barker Commons, as the parks are known, dates back to the 1820's and has some statuary and fountains of Victorian design.

    Continue down Temple Street and circle from Temple to Church to Center to Church to Temple and you will see the Revivalist architecture of the local churches.

    Head east down Church Street past Temple Street to Day Street then south on Day back to Main Street and you will see the 19th century architecture of the Barker Library and the Barker Museum and the Post Office.

    If you feel upto it, you can now take a long walk down the shady Central Avenue (take Day Street north to the intersection with Central and then walk northeast on Central Avenue).
    You will see a nice mix of early 20th century styles in the old homes and small business on Central Avenue.

    The total walk described is a leisurely two hour stroll which is good exercise on a nice day.
