Bethel , Iowa
Marion County, IA





BETHEL
Bethel, or Bethel City, was once a little trading center in the southern part of Clay Township, about two miles west of Bussey. At one time it had a general store that supplied the people of the surrounding country, but after the building of the railroads the greater portion of the trade was diverted to the new towns that sprang up along the railroad. All that is left of Bethel City is the old church and cemetery. No plat of the town was ever filed with the county recorder.
