The Bethesda Meeting House was erected on this site in 1820. The original sanctuary was destroyed by fire. A second edifice was built in 1850 about 100 yards south of the cemetery. In 1926 the church was moved to its present location at Wilson Lane and Clarendon Road.


In 1871 the local post office was given the name of this historic church. "Bethesda" is a Hebrew word which means "House of Mercy."


The Oldest Grave is dated 1820.


"I am the Resurrection and the Life: He that believeth in me, Though he were dead, yet shall he live." John 11:25
