A Visit with Bethlehem's Founding Family: June 28, 2019

Yours truly has been preparing the scripts for this event, and wow, I've been learning so much about the  Slingerland family.  Writing about them in the first person is fun too - but you'll have to come to the event for the stories.  

Find out about the panther that made an appearance in 1858.   Listen to John I. rant about the patroon and his agents, those "robbers and oppressors of the poor."  William H. brags about his work on the NY capital building and how be brought clean water to the hamlet.  And their mother Leah, she was a strong woman to raise a family in the country hamlet of Norman's Kill.  It will be a fun evening!  

The Friends of the Slingerland Family Burial Vault present
