The settlement of Bethany was effected near here in 1751 by John Gerar William DeBrahm, His Majesty`s Surveyor General for the Southern District of North America. Comprised at first of 160 Germans, the group was joined 11 months later by an equal number of "Relatives and Acquaintances". A commodious church edifice was built, also a school house and a residence for the teacher.

Bethany was in existence until the Revolution, but during that war it began to decay, and was never rebuilt.
