When Harry Hall came to Winchester in the fall of 2003 to research his book on “lady pedestriennes,” he had no idea he would find descendants of a walker not previously connected to this area. He traveled here to research Bertha Von Hillern, a former resident of Middletown, who walked nonstop for 24 hours in the late 1800s.

She was one of the most famous athletes of her day, and she lived some of her life in Middletown. Harry Hall is writing about her life, but he’s hoping someone will help him solve some mysteries about Bertha Von Hillern.
