About Us

The Bethel Historical Society and Museum was established in 1972, and currently operates the museum in the Grant Memorial building. 

The Bethel Historical Society purchased the Grant Memorial building from the Village of Bethel, on February 5, 2019.  We have since expanded the displays into most of the building.

Mission Statement


The Bethel Historical Society is dedicated to promoting and teaching the history of the Bethel community by providing an educational environment for people to understand, respect and learn from previous generations.  In our museum, we collect, preserve and display artifacts, writings, photographs and stories relevant to our past, which will honor those who came before us.
