JAMESTOWN – Jamestown Community College is selling off one of its most well-known and prized off-campus assets.
Sheldon House – which sits near the intersection of Falconer St. and Lakeview Ave. and has served as a guesthouse and facility for special events for nearly 40 years – is being placed on the market. JCC’s board of trustees, citing increased maintenance costs and diminishing funds in the college budget to support Sheldon House, has determined that the well-known facility no longer serves to advance the college’s central mission.
Sheldon House was built in 1860 and rebuilt in 1925. It was gifted for the benefit of JCC in 1977 by Julia Sheldon Livengood. The house functioned as a private residence through much of its history.
Sheldon House is located at 9 Falconer St., Jamestown. The college did not provide an asking price, but the property is valued at $425,000.
