Bethel AME Church
near Othello, Cumberland County


Just off Route 620 leading to Greenwich lies this fine small stucco church—the Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church. It was organized in 1816 and this building was erected in 1841. It is one of the earliest AME churches in the state, and very well maintained.
