Thumbs up to teaching an old agency new tricks. The Fenton History Center is partnering with BOCES and the Cassadaga Valley Central School district to broadcast its new education series. The program series will take place from 6-8 p.m. on six consecutive Thursdays, beginning April 11, and costs $35. The first session will be presented by Jon Schmitz, archivist and historian for Chautauqua Institution, and will serve as an introduction to public history, historical sources and regional history. The Fenton History Center has long been an asset to those who want to understand Jamestown's history, but it is heartening to see the center finding ways to use technology to spread its wings outside the city.
