Bethesda in 1871 was named after the Bethesda Meeting House, then a Presbyterian church and now a Baptist church which still stands overlooking Rockville Pike.
The Bethesda Historical Society, established in 2019, is an organization of volunteers dedicated to sharing and reflecting on the history of the Bethesda, Maryland area and its diverse residents.
The Society plans to develop events and educational programs focusing on significant locations and important moments in our history.
We are now a 501 (c)(3) organization, so donations are tax-deductible!
The Society loves to receive historical memorabilia of Bethesda.
Do you like to plan events, collect memorabilia, research, or fundraise? We are looking for fellow volunteers to help us preserve Bethesda memories while having fun at the same time!
