Bill,
Here's another reference, and it even mentions Elwells.
http://members.skyweb.net/~channy/BarkLight.html
The funny thing is, I live about 15 minutes from this area. I've hiked and fished and picnicked throughout the area. (Some of the best trout fly fishing on the east coast.)
If you go to http://www.google.com/advanced_search.html
and punch in Barkhamsted Lighthouse in the exact phrase box, you get some really interesting sites. I don't understand the reference to Bethlehem on some of the sites. Bethlehem is 30 miles from Barkhamsted and in CT, 30 miles is 1/3 of the way across the State. If there's anything more I can do to sort all this out for you let me know.
Bill
