Welcome to Bethel ...

So far, we have found very little information about Bethel. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Bethel to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Bethel, please Contact Us.




Bethel would have been located within present day Roosevelt County.

While the community is gone, the present day location for Bethel is 4,060 feet [1,237 m] above sea level.<2> In other words, the elevation of Bethel is about ¾ mile [or ~1¼ km] above sea level.

Time Zone: The area where Bethel was located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time

Note: If you travel east from Bethel (for example, toward Muleshoe (TX)), you will leave Mountain Time and cross into the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT).

If Bethel still existed, it would have been in the (575) area code.

However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Bethel, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
