GLENVILLE — The town is searching for a new historian.

The part-time vacancy was created earlier this month following the death of longtime Glenville historian Joan Spencer Szablewski, who was first appointed to the position in 1991. She was 91.

Those interested in filling the role have until the end of the month to submit their resume to Supervisor Chris Koetzle.

The town historian is tasked with educating the public on the town’s history, as well as conducting research and maintaining artifacts and historic records, and delivering a monthly report to the Town Board, according to a job posting on the town’s website.

State law requires every municipality to have an appointed historian. 

“The historian will be expected to write on town history, create public presentations, create and maintain the town’s history web page and create social media content,” the listing reads.

The position comes with flexible hours, but the historian is expected to be available during limited public hours at the town’s history center, according to the job listing.

Those interested in applying for the position have until March 31 to submit their resume to Koetzle at: [email protected].
