There is nothing but a roadside marker in Elmira where the prison was located but I seem to recollect quite a well kept cemetary where many of the confederates who died there are buried. The 64th NY trained there before it was a prison.

I also believe there is a marker in Westfield where the little girl is said to have suggested to Lincoln that he grow a beard.

There are a lot of civil war records, books, and artifacts at the Fenton history center in Jamestown. It is located in Civil War governor Fenton's home which is quite nicely preserved. Well worth a visit.
