Bethel, a former Methodist Episcopal Church, is located in Wells County, SE of Bluffton.  Founded in 1831, the congregation erected this building in 1899.  The ME church was closed in 1967, but the building remains on the National Register of Historic Places.  The well-proportioned exterior is notable for intricate brick work.  In 2014 the building was owned by an independent church which was using it for services and was making progress in restoring the handsome structure.

Located on the southeast corner of Wells County roads E300S and S450E.    GPS coordinates:  N40 41 56.52, W-085 08 09.88.
