The quaint village of Fredonia is home to the State University of New York College at Fredonia – a comprehensive residential liberal arts college which has earned recognition several times in the “America’s Best Colleges” listing in US News & World Report. Not only does the school offer an excellent education with a SUNY price tag, it also shapes much of the cultural and residential life in the surrounding community.
“The best of both worlds!" is how many describe Fredonia, New York, a picturesque village in rural Chautauqua County. Fredonia boasts a thriving downtown commercial area housed in historic architecture adjacent to distinctive civic buildings.
The centerpiece of downtown is Fredonia's twin Barker Commons. Laid out in 1825, are two splendidly restored Victorian Cast iron foundations. Floral displays and graceful shade trees make this a focal point for the downtown. The 1891 Fredonia Village Hall and its recently restored award-winning Opera House are among the most venerable civic buildings that surround the commons.
Shop, eat, relax, spend the night and enjoy cultural activities in a village rich in both classic elegance and contemporary delight. The quaint shops, quiet streets, friendly people, and a care for the casual visitor makes this village a perfect day-trip or a vacation destination. Nestled among the vineyards of Northern Chautauqua County, Fredonia is a community deeply rooted and growing. Close by you will find welcoming estate wineries, enchanting artists’ shops, and the beauty of our natural world in Western New York.
