Bart Smith

  • Snapshot: Bart Smith

    Occupation: I’m a printer. I work for R.R. Donnelley; we’re all over the world. I’m a salesperson, so I work out of my office in Newtown.

    Family: My wife is Barbara Kershaw. She’s an attorney in town. We have no children.

    Pets: Not anymore. We used to have a Great Pyrenees dog and a couple of cats, but they’ve all departed. We’re leaning toward a dog sometime, though.

  • NFA Purchases 27 Acres For Preservation

    “Just close your eyes and listen,” said Newtown Forest Association President Robert Eckenrode. He stood on an overgrown old farming road beside a stream; its splashing sounds mingled with birdsong and a gentle breeze. Referring to a 1934 aerial photograph of the 27.6-acre parcel at 196 Hattertown Road that the NFA recently purchased, member Bart Smith observed that the area where he and Mr Eckenrode explored Wednesday morning, probably once meadows, remains unchanged.
