CASSADAGA - At the monthly meeting of the Valley Historical Society, which was held recently at the Cassadaga American Legion Hall, Todd Langworthy, Pomfret historian, presented some historical information to those in attendance. Langworthy, who was presenting just before the election, wanted to tell about some people from the town who were elected to office. Five historical men, Zattu Cushing, who served as judge in Mayville, Dr. Squire White, who served as the first physician in the area and whose home is now the White Inn; Leverett Barker, who served as town supervisor and his house is now the museum with the Barker Library; Dr. Milton Fenner, who served as a physician and supervisor; and Arthur R. Maytum, who served as Pomfret supervisor for seven years were all part of the historical presentation. Historian Walter Waite from Cassadaga, said that he has a copy of the book which has the medicine recipes of Fenner. A fine program with photographs of the historical figures was enjoyed by all.
