One of the things that stands out in the history of Bethel is the rich heritage of skilled artisans who were part of founding this community. Bricklayers, bakers, builders, weavers, blacksmiths, brewers, seamstresses and glove makers, just to name a few, made their living using these skills. Plus, musicians played a large role in community life; celebrations of any kind always included music, and the German band was famous in the region
