Welcome to the Town of Bethlehem

town of bethlehem
Bethlehem was first established in 1774 as Lloyd's Hill, the last of the provincial land grants. This was probably because James Lloyd, for whom the town was named, was a loyalist. Voters elected to change the name to Bethlehem following the Revolution. This was done on the last Christmas Day of the century and the town was so incorporated on December 27, 1799. Bethlehem is nestled in the beautiful White Mountain Region, "The North Country", surrounded by National Forests and pristine natural beauty, just north of Franconia Notch. The town is a superb destination for year-round outdoor sports and activities and offers a perfect base for visitors to the many nearby White Mountain attractions.
