The Well at Bethabara

Adam Paris Churches, Towns 2 Comments

Did you know… this old well behind Bethabara Baptist Church in Habit was dug by David Miller in 1859. He was paid $11 for his 10 days of work. The well supplied water to the community until water lines were installed in the 1960’s.

  1. Thanks Adam. I served as pastor of this great church from 1973-78 and 1987-2009 when I retired. My wife and I are still members. Love history! Co-authored with Frances Eckstein an updated of history of the church in 1975 for the 150th anniversary celebration, and wrote a more extensive history in 2010. Keep up the good work and thanks again for the valuable contributions you have made to preserve our history.
