Building a stronger Bethel, VT

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.
