Historical Marker Dedication Program

Date Posted: Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

Last Saturday at Bethel Memorial Park, Bethel’s third historical marker sign was dedicated by state and local officials as well as supporting residents. This marker explains the history of how Bethel was founded.  The weather was beautiful for this dedication on Saturday, March 25. After the short program, attendees were treated to refreshments. If you have not yet seen the new marker, we invite you to come and visit!
