Historical Fostoria film series prepares for second installment

More of Fostoria’s history will be shared through a continuation of a documentary series first released last year.

The Fostoria Area Historical Society, in partnership with local film studio Capture1 Studios, is completing finishing touches to a sequel revolving around Fostoria’s past, “The History of Fostoria, Volume II: ‘Pieces of Our Past,’” which features the John B. Rogers Production Company, Fostoria Academy, and VFW Post 421’s national championship band and highlights the life of Gov. Charles Foster.

Similar to Volume I, the second installment is also hosted by Leonard Skonecki, president of the Fostoria Area Historical Society, portraying Gov. Foster. A special appearance by Mrs. Ann Foster — or Cindy Swartz, activity director at Good Shepherd Home — adds depth and humor to the narrative.

Rogers’ company as an example, citing its popularity and successes. “That’s just one example of something that makes Fostoria important in its own way; makes Fostoria unique.
