Greenwood Ave Then
Home to a growing cultural center, Greenwood Avenue was always well traveled. But back then it was more common to see a horse and buggy than a motor vehicle.
Greenwood Ave Now
Greenwood Avenue now is home to plenty of shops and dining. There are always people about, except now they get around by car.
Back then the only way to cover long distances was by train. The trains back then, powered by steam, were slow and would take a long time to get to your destination.
Today it is easy to get to New York City. Just drive or bike to the station and in about an hour and a half you are in the heart of Manhattan.
The Seth Seelye House / Library Then
The Seth Seelye property was given to the Town of Bethel in 1914 forever to be used as Bethel’s Free Public Library.
The Seth Seelye House / Library Now
It’s easy to get lost in a good book from the library. With plenty of modern additions this library has it all. The 1842 structure was added to the National Register of Historic Places on September 29th, 1977.
