Bethel has a long history of community pride from its inception in 1809. Today Bethel is one of the fastest growing communities of our county. It continues to be the center of county agriculture, which is the second largest industry in Sullivan County. This community was host of the 1969 world-famous Woodstock Music and Arts Festival and Bethel continues to draw visitors to this site. Also drawing many visitors is the Bradstan County Hotel Bed & Breakfast and Cabaret. A modern, newly upgraded airport and the adjacent industrial park are a perfect fit for relocating businesses. The airport is also growing to be a gateway to second-home owners who find Sullivan County a great place to escape the hustle of metropolitan life. Although commercial service is not offered at Sullivan County International Airport, its 6300 foot runway welcomes many charter planes, corporate jets and all types of private aircraft. Housing developments and wonderful residential communities throughout Bethel offer new residents a host of options.
One of the most attractive features of Bethel is its access to numerous lakes, all within a five minute drive of each other. They include White Lake, its northern portion known as Kauneonga Lake, Silver Lake, and Lake Superior, which is part of the state park with the same name.
