My wife, Rhonda and i have owned a home in Mattapoisett for nearly 20 years. We have lived here full time for the past 5 years. Rhonda is the daughter of Al Bernardo who was born in Mattapoisett in 1925. His parents, Alexander & Rose Bernardo immigrated from Terceira in the 1910's and settled here. Al was a WWII veteran, and his name is proudly displayed in Town Hall. Our Daughter, Rachel and her family visit often from Milton. Her daughters think Mattapoisett is "Heaven".
