Building a Stronger Bethel

The Bethel Revitalization Initiative works to build a stronger, more vibrant, and inclusive town. Our community is nestled in the White River Valley of central Vermont, and it offers a unique history, natural beauty, and entrepreneurial spirit. We're working to protect what makes Bethel special, and improve what could make it even better.


 We're nearly finished installing three public art projects with a grant from the Vermont Art Council. Learn more about our new 200-foot mural, colorful banners and benches.
