Celoron Park on Chautauqua Lake

A new book out by Tom Goodwill that is about a history of the Celoron amusement park from the turn of the last century just came outl. This park was around when Lucille Ball lived in Celeron. Lucy spent time at the park and enjoyed the shows that played there.

The book also contains a complete chapter on Lucy. Written by Tom Goodwill, a former Jamestown resident, amateur historian, and avid postcard collector. It's a great read, and you'll learn a lot of things about Lucy's childhood hometown that you never knew!

Thanks to Abbie for this story - who has a great website on Lucy's childhood home in Celeron - http://59lucylane.com
