Bethania was established in 1759 as a self-sufficient farming community which allowed both Moravian and non-Moravian settlers. It offers a living and working town that is also devoted to preserving its history. A National Historic Landmark, the town of Bethania is the only know existing Germanic-type Linear Agriculture village in the South. Historic Bethania offers a chance to explore the restored 1790s Wolff-Moser House, 1894 Alpha Chapel and enjoy a walk on the 1.5-mile Black Walnut Trail. Take a leisurely walk down Main Street, and see the carefully preserved and restored stores and private homes.
