The Murder of

THEODORE BRODHEAD

with John Abel​

Sunday, November 3rd


at 2:00 pm

 

John’s well-researched program was a vivid account of Monroe County’s first murder and execution. In 1868, the murder of a prominent citizen shattered the tranquility and enraged the citizens of Delaware Water Gap. After robbing a hotel owned by Thomas Brodhead two drifters attempted to flee the area but were captured within hours. John has gone beyond the archives and records stored in libraries, basements, and attics to make a personal connection with his subject. Mr. Abel, who enjoys writing short stories and poems, is a member of the Monroe County Historical Association as well as our Paradise Historical Society. He is also the coordinator of the

annual History Challenge for local high

school students. He has just finished

a full-length book about the case,

“The Murder of Theodore Brodhead,” which was available for purchase

(and signing) at the lecture.
