The Bethany Cemetery was created when the old Lutheran one in Charleston suddenly was full due to a yellow fever epidemic.

Later on the actual site of the first cemetery was lost. In the 1930’s the church land was sold off in lots, fast forward to 1981 and graves were found during excavation. Later on 437 graves were relocated to Bethany.
