History:  

BETHEL, a city in St. Francis Township, was first settled in 1856 by Quakers and was organized the next year; it was established as a post office in 1865 at a site known as Bethel Corners, incorporated as a village in 1902 and reincorporated in 1913. Its name is from ancient Palestine, meaning "House of God," and was selected for this township by Moses Twitchell, who settled here as an immigrant from Bethel, Maine.
