FACTOIDS ABOUT BETHEL'S HISTORY:

On March 5, 1937 the newly constructed Bethel A.M.E. Church, shown above on the right, was dedicated.

On January 1, 1935 a fire destroyed Bethel, leading to the congregation raising funds to erect a new church.

In 1865, the congregation purchased the Zion Evangelical German Lutheran Church at 6th and Walnut Streets, site of the current church.

In September 1853, the congregation relocated from 12th & Elizabeth to 6th & Penn Streets.
