Bethel was a railroad community on the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad in southern Tarrant County. It was established sometime during or after the late 1870s and served area farmers and ranchers as a community center for twenty or thirty years, then disappeared. The Bethel station appeared on county highway maps as late as 1936. Bethel never had a post office. According to some sources, a second Bethel, originally part of the Peters colony grant, existed in eastern Tarrant County during the 1850s.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
