“In April of 2005, Mike Campbell of Campbell Printing, conceived the idea of preserving the history of the Rensselaer area through a retrospective magazine. Steering away from family genealogy and "what the old timers used to say", the main criteria of "Vintage Views" includes people and occurrences of state or national interest within what is now the Rensselaer Central school district.
