Historical societies partner for annual picnic Tuesday

BUSTI – The Chautauqua County Historical Society would like to invite the public to its next upcoming speaker program and annual summer picnic.

For this year’s picnic, the county historical society will partner with the Busti Historical Society to present a discussion on the renovation of the historic Busti Mill. The event will be held on June 24 at the Busti Mill, 3443 Lawson Road in Jamestown. It will begin at 6 p.m. and continue until 8 p.m.

In addition to the picnic and discussion, which will be led by Norman Carlson of the Busti Historical Society, a tour and live demonstration of the renovated mill will also take place.

Parking is limited immediately adjacent to the mill and pavilion, so attendees are asked to reserve those spots for handicapped and/or elderly guests. Additional parking is also available in several places directly across the road. There is no cost to attend, but everyone who is on hand is encouraged to provide a dish to pass for the picnic.

Reservations are appreciated. To make a reservation or for more information, call the Historical Society at 326-2977 or email
