|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.
Westfield NY with its historic homes, desirable location on the shore of Lake
Erie and five miles from Chautauqua Lake and Institution, offers a wonderful experience for
the visitor. Chautauqua County
celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1902 on the front lawn of Landmark
Acres and also the bicentennial celebration in 2002. It is the site of
the first post office in Chautauqua County. Landmark Acres is
also the oldest farm in Chautauqua County, now a grape farm in
heart of the Chautauqua Lake Erie wine trail, the largest concord
growing area in the world.
Our antique shop has over 5000 square feet of early antiques 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 more assistance to you and help to guarantee authenticity.
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.
Landmark Acres Antiques is an antiques shop established in 1946
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
assistance of the
National and State Historic Trusts and the local Chautauqua Landmark
Society. 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
Anne Victorian home designed by the famous architect George Barber.

Landmark Acres Antiques offers a selection of 18th, 19th and early 20th century country and formal American Furniture as well as some European and Asian pieces (1720 to 1920). We also offer art, oriental rugs, china, glass and porcelain, a large selection of silver flatware and hollowware, coins, jewelry, watches, books, paintings, a large selection of early lighting, aesthetic movement, art nouveau, arts and craft, and decorative accessories. 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. Remember this area is part of the original rise of 19th century steel manufacturing in our nation both in Buffalo and Pittsburgh and furniture manufacturing in Jamestown and Cincinnati. Oil was also 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 a few extremely wealthy small communities.
As people in these nearby communities became wealthy they bought many things, at first from Pittsburg as well as Cincinnati, Cleveland & Buffalo, the centers of the new industrial revolution in the United States. Western PA was also at the heart of the growing lumber industry with people's thirst for furniture and homes. These people later bought directly out of New York City from world famous dealers. Many dealers like Tiffany designed their windows, sold them lighting, silver & jewelry. Several major dealers in New York now bought items for their shops from New England, London and Paris. In more recent years we have bought many items from several of these homes.
We are currently interested in purchasing Gold and Silver (jewelry, watches, sterling & coins).

We do appraisals in the off season 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 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. This also allows you to examine items carefully and guarantees their authenticity. 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?

You should have this information in order to follow an item's sale and final price.
