Bethlehem Methodist Church

Taken about the time of it's dedication in 1899. This building housed the second Methodist Church. The first, Mt. Zion, was built in 1839 on land provided by Joseph Sewell on Sewell Rd. Pastor Sewell was the minister until his death in 1882. In the late 1890's, the congregation decided to build a church closer to Bethlehem [photo].
