iHome Realty is Your Barrow County Real Estate Agent
Bethlehem, GA, “the little town under the star,” is located in Barrow County. The town is believed to have borrowed its name from the Bethlehem Methodist Church, which was established in 1796. Bethlehem has the unique distinction of being a Christmas-themed community, with all of its street names borrowed from the story of birth of Christ. Not surprisingly, Bethlehem sees a lot of special activity during the Holidays, including a live Nativity scene in the town square. Hundreds of people bring their Christmas cards to the Bethlehem Post Office so they can be stamped with a Bethlehem cancellation. In 2018, the Bethlehem Post Office cancelled more than 120,000 pieces of mail.
The Bethlehem Star Festival debuted in 2005 and attracts a variety of art, craft and food vendors. Musical entertainment is provided throughout the day and attractions for children make this festival a family affair. Bethlehem's City Park includes a beautiful gazebo, a walking trail and a picnic pavilion which can be rented for events. The pavilion has a full kitchen and bathrooms in the rear.
Bethlehem’s Harrison Poultry employs more than 1,100 people. Founded in 1948, Harrison Poultry now processes a million chickens per week. R. Harold Harrison, the son of founder Luther Harrison, purchased the land and paid to construct the new Bethlehem United Methodist Church on Highway 11. Mr. Harrison also established trusts to be used for the good of the community; Apalachee High School’s football stadium is one of the projects funded by the Harrison foundation.
The Town of Bethlehem offers free garbage and recycling to residents within in the city limits. This quiet community is a great option for families seeking a true small-town experience with convenient access to metro Atlanta and the other great communities of northeast Georgia.
