The upstairs gallery
One of the old Franklin stoves used at Bethel.This is a picture of the Franklin stove in the gallery. It stands unused now. There was another Franklin stove in the sanctuary but I do not know what became of it. During our Christmas service someone brings in a gas stove to heat the building as there is no electricity.
Picture of the upstairs gallery.This is where the servants would gather to worship. Bethel did have a large black membership as indicated by the minute books and apparently it was a thriving one.
Picture of sanctuary from the gallery.Here you can see a better view of the partitions dividing the women's meeting on the left and the men's meeting on the right.
