Village of Bethany...a Great Place to Call Home!

In the Village of Bethany, we are defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values our residents hold dear. Small town values, guided growth, preservation of historical, cultural, and natural heritage are just a few of the core principles that makes our village a wonderful place to call home!

Someone brought in some tools they found in the middle of the road, that we believe may have fallen off of a work truck. If you believe they may belong to you, call us at (217) 665-3351 or head to the "Contact Us" page to send us a message and give us a description of what it is you are missing.
