Landmark Acres is the oldest settled property (1802) in Chautauqua County, Western New York and has a prominent listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Col. James McManon originally purchased from the Holland Land Company a tract of land, 30,000 acres, the origination of Chautauqua County. Chautauqua County celebrated its 100th anniversary (1902) and the bicentennial celebration in 2002 on the front lawn of Landmark Acres. Westfield NY offers a wonderful experience for the visitor with its historic homes, desirable location on the shore of Lake Erie and five miles from Chautauqua Lake and Institution.

Landmark Acres Antiques is located in the oldest building, a 5000 sq. foot barn on the oldest Farm in Chautauqua County, now a grape farm in the heart of the Chautauqua Lake Erie Wine Trail.  Landmark Acres Antiques has been a Westfield New York antique shop since 1946 and is today one of the larger and older quality antique shops in the nation. Landmark Acres Antiques offers for the discriminating buyer 1725 to 1925 country and formal American Furniture, with several European and a few Asian pieces. We also offer art, oriental rugs, china, porcelain, jewelry, coins, silver, books, paintings, a large selection of early lighting, aesthetic movement, art nouveau, arts and crafts, and decorative accessories. 

Our website has brought us many new customers from around the nation and nearby Canada. Many of these customers are impressed with the quality of items in our shop and ask where did we find so many nice things? We have been able to purchase special items from many early private homes in the western half of NY, PA and eastern Ohio. In the 19th century this area experienced the original beginnings of the Industrial Revolution in the United States. South of us approximately 40 miles was the first discovery of oil in America, 1859 in Titusville, PA. People flocked to Western PA to purchase land contributing to the rise of five wealthy small communities north of Pittsburgh. The early rise of the furniture industry in Jamestown and Buffalo, NY (Kittinger), Ohio (Mitchell & Rammelsburg and Kramer Bros.), the steel industry Buffalo and Pittsburg, the lumber industry Western Pennsylvania  (certain trees found here were used for the highest quality ship's masts in the world), the automobile industry, Cleveland (small parts mfg. for Detroit) and Buffalo (Pierce Arrow, etc) now resulted in a large number of historic homes with fine furnishings.

As people in these several small surrounding communities north of Pittsburgh became extremely wealthy they bought many things at first from Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Buffalo. Western PA, Pittsburgh was also a major part of the early beginnings of the manufacturing industry (Pittsburgh Glass, etc.) with these people's thirst for furnishings. Between the lumber industry, the steel industry, the furniture industry and the discovery of oil a great amount of wealth was now added to these few small towns. These people then began buying directly out of New York City from world famous dealers, a few bought homes on 5th Ave. as a base for getaways and shopping. Several of these New York dealers like Tiffany designed their windows and sold them furnishings, lighting, silver and jewelry. Soon these New York dealers also began buying items for their shops from New England, London and Paris to now accommodate the sixty wealthiest NYC families in the world resulting from the Industrial Revolution. In more recent years we have bought many items from the local homes of some of these wealthy families in Western PA.  Antiques from Ohio, PA and NY homes are arranged in room settings and  everything is priced with a detailed description of most major pieces. 

You may also find that our antique shop inventory is helpful in determining the value of pieces you already own. We have owned Landmark Acres Antiques for almost 50 years and we do no shows, do not sell on Ebay and do not send anything to auction. Please visit, you can carefully examine an item before purchase. Detailed descriptions are available on most major pieces in our shop. These also help you to guarantee their authenticity and guide you with research on the net. We buy all antiques outright and sell through our shop and website.   Since we own all antiques displayed we can also offer a detailed return policy on your receipt. We are always interested in buying antiques of quality.
