The Hometown History column is presented by the Fenton History Center and The Post-Journal. Each Friday, a distinct item from the Fenton History Center collections or archival special collections will be featured. Learn about your hometown history through parts of its past.
If one of the items featured brings back some memories or brings up a question, please contact the Fenton History Center at 664-6256 or firstname.lastname@example.org to share your memory or get an answer to your question.
Since the staff of the Fenton History Center has been busy with the Research Center move, we are letting some 1920s Valentines "write" this week's column. Happy Valentine's Day!
St. Valentine was a good old chap
As ever there could be,
He tried to make it easy
For bashful folks like me.
BE MY VALENTINE
The purpose of the Fenton History Center is to gather and teach about southern Chautauqua County's history through artifacts, ephemeral and oral histories, and other pieces of the past.
