1987 - Bartschi Parcels Off His Land

Arnold Bartschi meets with Eleanor Morris and signs control of a 52 acre tract next to Swiss pines over to the French and Pickering Creek Conservation Trust. Shortly after he reads the papers again and decides he dislikes the agreement but can’t reverse it.

Previously he had sold 270 acres and placed 180 acres into The Bartschi Foundation. At this juncture he decides to place his last 70 acres into the Foundation.
