History Throwbacks ~ Bringing the Guests from Town

Posted on November 12, 2013

BHC History Bit ~ Imagine getting off the sleeper – the overnight train – from New York, to be greeted by an enthusiastic BHC staff member for the long ride in a surrey pulled by a fast team. That smiling person was Allen Penfield Beach, Bob’s and my Grandfather. We’re sure he regaled the guests with tales of farm animals, fresh produce and the restorative qualities of the fresh air at Basin Harbor – which would be a welcome change from the dusty journey from Vergennes! ~ Pennie
