Bethania in Forsyth County, North Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
—The Wachovia Moravian, January 1895
The small chapel never developed into an independent church. Instead, the building was moved to grounds of Mizpah Moravian Church. A growing Mizpah Moravian no longer needed the chapel; therefore, it was transferred to a local farm site.
The chapel relocated to its present site in 2001 after being donated to the Town of Bethania by Mr.and Mrs. Burton Winfrey. Today, a restored building functions as the Bethania Town Hall
Erected by Town of Bethania.
