The Pelham Historical Society is pleased to announce an expansion to its online collection. This year we were again able to hire Sean Lewis under the Canada Summer Jobs Program of the Federal Government, and we decided to put some of the early issues of the Pelham District High School magazine, the Pnyx, on line. The school was started in Fenwick in 1922 as a continuation school with eight students, and became a high school in 1949.
