  Beginning in 1946, Landmark Acres Antiques has grown to be one of the larger and older quality antique shops in this part of the nation. Landmark Acres Antiques is in a large barn, the oldest building in Chautauqua County, 1802. 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 in 1902 on the front lawn of Landmark Acres and also the bicentennial celebration in 2002. Landmark Acres is the site of the first post office in Chautauqua County and is also the oldest farm in the County,  now a grape farm in the heart of the Chautauqua Lake Erie wine trail. This area is the largest concord grape growing region in the world. 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.

Our antique shop has over 5000 square feet of early antiques (1725 to1925) and a few decorator items in room settings with three large display rooms upstairs and down. We publish only a few items to our website to give you an idea of the quality of our inventory. If you wish to know more about certain antiques you may find that our antique shop inventory is helpful. Most major pieces have a detailed description which can be of  assistance in helping you to guarantee their authenticity and guide you with research on the net.

We do no shows, do not sell on E-bay and do not send anything to auction. Please visit, you can carefully examine an item before purchase. We buy all antiques outright and sell through our shop and website. Since we own all antiques we also offer a reasonable and detailed return policy on your receipt.   We are always interested in buying antiques of quality.

Westfield New York Early American Antique Shop on I-90 along Lake Erie                           


Landmark Acres Antiques is an antiques shop established in 1946 owned by Ed and Wilma Benjamin since 1974. In 1986 we purchased Candlelight Lodge, a few blocks away and opened it as a Bed and Breakfast, one of the first in the center of Westfield, NY.  We moved the Captain Storm House in 2000 to Candlelight property with the assistance of the National and State Historic Trusts, the local Chautauqua Landmark Society and CVS Pharmacy. After completion of its restoration, we opened the Captain Storm House in 2004. The Captain Storm House is a special longer term Vacation Rental, a brick Queen Anne Victorian home designed by the famous architect George Barber.

The following are a few examples of antiques that we have in stock to give you an idea of our inventory. Visit or call our shop if you have special needs.

We have been able to purchase special items from early private homes in the western half of NY, PA and eastern Ohio, recently Columbus Ohio. This area has a history of many people having major fine historic furnishings in their homes. Earlier many wagons leaving from Boston for a new life in the far west found they had taken too much with them and had to leave many wonderful historical furnishings in Western New York, Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio, many settled here. In the 19th century this area experienced the original beginnings of the Industrial Revolution in the United States.  Oil was first discovered in the United States just a few miles south of us in Titusville, Pa. 1859. It was the dawn of the oil industry, no longer from sperm whales but now from the earth. People flocked to Western PA to purchase land contributing to the rise of five very wealthy small communities south of us. The early rise of the furniture industry in Jamestown and Buffalo, NY (Kittinger), Ohio (Mitchell & Rammelsburg and Kramer Bros.), the steel industry Buffalo and Pittsburgh, the lumber industry Western Pennsylvania (certain trees found here were used for the highest quality ship's masts in the world) and 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., Pittsburgh was also part of the early beginnings of the manufacturing industry (Pittsburgh Glass. etc.) with these peoples' thirst for furnishings.

As people in these small communities became extremely wealthy they bought many things, at first from Pittsburgh as well as Cleveland & Buffalo, centers of the new  Industrial Revolution in the United States. These people later bought directly out of New York City from world famous dealers, a few bought homes on 5th Ave. as a base for getaways and shopping. Many dealers like Tiffany designed their windows, sold them lighting, silver & jewelry.  Several major dealers in New York City now began buying items for their shops from New England, London and Paris to also accommodate the new 60 wealthiest New York City families in the world as a result of 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. 

We are currently  interested in purchasing Gold and Silver (jewelry, watches, sterling & coins).

We no longer do appraisals off site unless nearby but still offer free unwritten appraisals year round if you make an appointment and bring in a few items or a detailed description with  pictures. You can also email information and pictures through our website, perhaps at that point we can make an appointment to see the items in person. You may find that our shop inventory is helpful in determining the value of pieces you already own since our inventory is large and most important items have detailed descriptions. These also allow you to examine items carefully, help you to guarantee their authenticity and guide you with research on the net. We are always interested in buying outright antiques of quality.

We will hold all purchases for a couple of days but then require a 50% deposit and the balance paid within 30 days. Please allow time for your balance to clear before pick-up and please schedule in advance.

If you consign with others ask a few important questions. Is the item insured, how is the item priced and if placed on a website, what is the site name? Most consignments involve shop owners and their website. Your items might also be photographed and placed on larger websites or different places, perhaps with an auctioneer. You should have this information in order to follow an item's sale and final price.
