Bethlehem

Bethlehem was a school community fourteen miles northwest of Jefferson in northwestern Marion County. The Bethlehem school had eighty-nine black pupils and one teacher in 1899. In 1938 the community had a one-room schoolhouse that accommodated thirty-five elementary students. The school was consolidated with the Lassater schools by 1955, and in 1962 Bethlehem was not shown on government survey maps.
