Town Description:

Located in beautiful Litchfield County, Bethlehem is Connecticut's "Christmas Town". Our town's religious history includes the founding of the first theological seminary in the country and the sermons of the Rev. Joseph Bellamy. His home stands as proudly today as it did in the 18th century - the Bellamy-Ferriday House and Garden.

Bethlehem is also the home of the Regina Laudis Monastery and its exquisite museum quality, 18th century Neapolitan Crèche. The late Lauren Ford, Bethlehem resident who took the co-foundresses of the Abbey into her home when they arrived in Bethlehem, is internationally known for her religious artwork.

Each year the Bethlehem Post Office processes thousands of Christmas cards that may be hand-stamped with special Christmas cachets and mailed with the Bethlehem post mark.

Since 1981, Bethlehem has held its annual Christmas Town Festival. The Town Green is the center of the festival, with the buildings and churches surrounding it decorated and brimming with holiday crafters and delicious food.
