Museum Presentation: The Bethlehem, PA – Fishers Island Connection
January 16 @ 4:00 pm
Dear Fishers Islander,
This upcoming Sunday, January 16th, HLFM Director Pierce Rafferty will host a rebroadcast of ‘The Bethlehem, PA – Fishers Island Connection: How a Once Strong Link Became Uncoupled,’ a video that chronicles the remarkable story of Fishers Island’s once strong but now all-but-forgotten connections to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
This in-depth exploration of a rich vein of Fishers Island history focuses on the Bartlett family (owners of the Bartlett Cottages), the Hoppes family (owners of the Mononotto Inn), and the Linderman brothers (two industrialists who built the “Garp” house and today’s Baccile house).
Featured are historical subplots with dramatic twists, turns, and sudden reversals worthy of the period melodramas of the early 1900s. Please note that this video, co-directed by HLFM Director Pierce Rafferty and Marisela La Grave, was first shown on July 26, 2020.
