  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 located in a large barn which is the oldest building in Chautauqua County, 1802. With its historic homes, desirable location on the shore of Lake Erie and five miles from Chautauqua Lake and Institution, Westfield NY 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 the heart of the Chautauqua Lake Erie wine trail, the largest concord grape 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 do not belong to any outside organizations or encourage individuals to  promote us through paid reviews.  We do support and promote local organizations and businesses. 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 and opened it as a Bed and Breakfast in the center of Westfield, NY.  We also opened the Captain Storm House in 2004 next door, after moving the brick home in 2000 to Candlelight property. With the assistance of the National and State Historic Trusts and the local Chautauqua Landmark Society we were able to complete its restoration. The Captain Storm House is a special Vacation Rental, a brick Queen 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 buy from many older homes within a couple of hundred miles. This includes most of Ohio, Western Pennsylvania and Western New York. This area has a history of having many fine historical furnishings in their homes. Remember this area is the site of the original rise of 19th century industry in our nation. Oil was also first discovered in the United States just a few miles south of us in Titusville, Pa. 1859. As people in several surrounding communities became wealthy they bought many things, at first from Pittsburgh but then directly out of New York City.  Tiffany designed many of their windows. It was the dawn of the oil industry, no longer from sperm whales but now from the earth. Recently we are interested in purchasing Gold and Silver (jewelry, sterling, coins), late 18th, 19th & early 20th Century American & European Furniture, early Lighting & Aesthetic Movement pieces (Art Nouveau & Arts & Craft)

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 a few  pictures. You also 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 helps to guarantee their authenticity. We are always interested in buying outright antiques of quality.

All purchases require a 50% deposit and the balance paid within 30 days. Please allow time for your balance to clear before pick-up and pick-up should be scheduled 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.
