Bethesda Has a Rich History

Originally surveyed in 1694, Bethesda was officially named in 1871 after a Presbyterian church which stood on right near the present day Cemetery of the Bethesda Meeting House. A number of mansions were built around the early 20th century, and rapid expansion of downtown began around the same time period.
