Happy 4th of July!!

Happy Fourth from the Vaghi family, owners of 32 Elizabeth Street.

 

 

 

A little note from Paul Vaghi, of 32 Elizabeth St:

 … I recently purchased an old family homestead … in the attic was stored-away a 48-star American Flag that my grandparents used to hang vertically from the top of the 2nd floor of the house, and it reaches all the way down to the bottom of the 1st floor … we have it currently hanging for the first time in many a decade … The house is at 32 Elizabeth St.

Happy 4th !!

Paul Vaghi

Thanks for sharing, Paul, and Happy Fourth to all of the Patch readers in Bethel!

With the admission of Arizona and New Mexico to the United States under President Taft in 1912, the nation's flag was redesigned for 48 stars in a pattern of 6 rows of 8 stars. The 48 star spangled banner continued as the nation's flag until 1959 when Alaska and Hawaii were admitted to the Union, and the flag was updated to 50 stars in a staggered pattern..
