A celebration of the installation of a new historic road marker on Fiddlers Bridge Road is set for May 22 at 2 PM. The Clinton Historical Society obtained a grant from the W.G. Pomeroy Foundation to purchase a permanent metal sign commemorating the local legend of the Fiddlers Bridge Ghost. The legend notes the 1808 murder of a local fiddler on his way home after playing at a dance. His body was found under a bridge (long gone) on what is now Fiddlers Bridge Road. The celebration will include a visit from the fiddler who will recite the legend, local musician Vito Petroccitto performing his original song “The Legend of Fiddler’s Bridge Road”, refreshments, hay rides and the sign unveiling.
This event will be held at the Primrose Hill Farm, 203 Fiddlers Bridge Road.
