Bethesda Church & Cemetery

A stop on the Tennessee Civil War Trails, Bethesda Church, a quaint old building with high-backed pews and an enclosed pulpit, is one of the oldest churches in this section of the state. The church was used as a hospital for wounded soldiers by both the Union and Confederate armies. Along with graves dating back to the 1700s, there are approximately 82 unknown soldiers buried in the cemetery. A kiosk is located on the site providing information about the Civil War as well as the local history of the Lakeway area. Bethesda Church still hosts an occasional worship service.
