HISTORICAL CENTER

Posted on Mon, Jul 18, 2011

Stop in and see our new acquisitions!

To arrange to visit the Historical Center at other than scheduled times (listed in this bulletin and posted on the bulletin board across from the dining hall), please contact Marilyn Wolf, 860-345-4957, cottage 66. Though quite small as museums go, the Historical Center contains a wealth of historical information including photos, memorabilia and artifacts. Make time for a visit this year.

I recently stopped at Camp Bethel with my 2 daughters on our way home from a day at the beach. I hadn't been there in several years now. I had attended YPI Camp for 1 or 2 summers as a young teenagers. MY family had been involved with the Camp from very early on-my great-grandparents were Eliza & Joshua Denton. He was an Advent minister as well as my great uncle Will Denton--I'm sure that my great-grandfather was at all the Camp meetings each summer. MY great aunt Margaret Denton was also very involved with Camp Bethel--it was an important part of their lives. They actually owned the cottage that is now the caretaker's house. My grandparents also spent many years there--Albert & Nellie Denton--as well as my parents Ruth & Edgar Norton. It has always been a very special place for my family over many years. It was great to see that it has been desingnated a NAtional Historic Place & see the plaques on so many of the cottages. We spent a lovely & as always very pleasant & peaceful hour or so roaming around the Camp & enjoying the views. I would love to come back at some point & visit the Hiistorical Museum. Is the Advent Church still involved with the Campground? JUdy Norton DeVito Collinsville, CT
