Welcome to the Village of Bettsville

In the year 1834, John Betts purchased 68 1/2 acres of land in Liberty Township. In 1838 he had it surveyed into 21 lots which became the Village of Bettsville. By 1847 Bettsville contained 7 family dwellings, 2 churches, 1 cabinet shop, and one shoe shop with a population of 40.

Bettsville continued to expand and thrive and many more businesses were started and many more families settled in. In the bitter cold of 1912, the now downtown business district that housed a department store caught fire causing the entire north State Street to burn. Not one single building stood to exist. But Bettsville didn’t die.
