A Window Into Comedy’s Past and Future

The National Comedy Center, which opened in Jamestown, New York in 2018, is home to the country’s foremost archive of the history and art form of comedy. The groundbreaking museum is housed, in part, in a remarkable historic building – the Jamestown Gateway Station.

The station, built between 1930 and 1932, featured Hope’s custom steel windows as part of its chic Art Deco design. As a result, Hope’s Windows, Inc., another Jamestown institution, was a natural choice to provide steel replacement windows for the historic building as well as steel windows and doors for the new construction when the National Comedy Center redeveloped the site. Since then, Hope’s Windows has continued to support the National Comedy Center and its contributions to the wider Jamestown community.
