Dear island fishermen,
This Sunday, January 16, Pierce Rafferty, director of HLFM will host a replay of “The Bethlehem, PA – Fishers Island Connection: How a once strong bond fell apart” a video that tells the remarkable story of Fishers Island’s once strong but now forgotten ties to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
This in-depth exploration of a rich vein in 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 the current Baccile house).
Presented are historical subplots with dramatic twists, turns and sudden reversals worthy of period melodramas of the early 1900s. Please note that this video, co-produced by Pierce Rafferty, director of HLFM and Marisela La Grave, first aired on July 26, 2020.
