my Great-Grandfather, Frank Shafer, began to work with his father-in-Law, John George, a builder in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Frank bought land from the Moravian Church and built many homes located on the 1000 block of Center Street. He also worked on the Hill-to-Hill Bridge in the 1920s. My grandfather, dad, and I all grew up on Center Street in a house that my great-grandfather built.
My Father still lives in the house that our uncle designed and built in 1926. It was built on land from the old Bethlehem Fairgrounds. The horse racetrack would have been in our front yard.
