Architectural note:
The neighborhood of Bethania is a survival of European town planning, with houses hugging the road. House lots once bordered the north and south sides of a central square, while the church lay east of it. The square has since been lost.
Historical note:
Bethania was less restrictive than nearby Bethabara, and it accommodated both Moravians and non-Moravians who had come to Bethabara as refugees. The neighborhood still retains most of the character it had developed by the mid-nineteenth century. Historic buildings constructed between 1759 and 1860. Bethania is listed as a National Historic Landmark District.
