I have had the privilege of living in Westfield NY. Six miles north of Mayville, one mile south of Lake Erie’s Barcelona Harbor, the village of Westfield is truly at the heart of it all. Originally named "Crossroads", the village was founded in 1702 at the intersection of an old French and Indian fur-trading route, the Portage Trail, and the major road between Erie and Buffalo, now U.S. Route 20. This picturesque village of 3,500 residents is known for its elegant old homes, beautiful churches, majestic trees and delightful antique shops. Every Saturday from May to December, the Cross Roads Country Craft Market welcomes visitors to its 40-vendor “mall” that offers the region’s finest in arts, crafts, collectibles and specialty food products.
For history buffs, the McClurg Mansion in Moore Park is a must see. A private residence circa 1815, the McClurg was donated to the village and is now a museum that also serves as headquarters for the Chautauqua County Historical Society. It houses an important collection of furnishings, fine art, and local memorabilia including military artifacts, farm and craftsman tools, toys, and Native American artifacts.
