Bethlehem

Bethlehem was three miles north of Rockdale in central Milam County. It became a voting precinct in 1880. The settlement, which was named for the biblical city, had a one-teacher school with forty-two students in 1903. The school was consolidated with the Rockdale Independent School District in 1954. No evidence of the community appeared on 1988 county highway maps.

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.
