Among many other places of interest, Fredonia has some historical homes that have been nicely preserved!

View clockworks through the windows and watch as the antique mechanism chimes for every hour!
Many of the buildings on the downtown square were built in the late 1800's or early 1900's. Some have been restored while others have seen better days. Regardless, there is much rich history and architecture preserved in these buildings.
Located on the east side of the square, the museum is housed in the former Wilson County jail and Sheriff's residence built in 1915.
