Founded in 1966, the Society provides visitors with a doorway to the past from its Regional History Center in historic Bethel Hill Village.

Open year-round, the Bethel Historical Society's Regional History Center offers more than a dozen period rooms and exhibit galleries where visitors can discover and explore the area's varied past. The Society's museum and library collections include a wide range of materials documenting the heritage of northern New England, with a major focus on western Maine and the White Mountain region of Maine and New Hampshire. Throughout the year, the Society provides lectures, courses, special exhibits, craft demonstrations, and educational activities for both members and the general public.
