Bethel Church - Victoria, TN

Bethel Church - Victoria, TN

This is located just off of the Valley View Highway (old TN28) north of Victoria in Marion County. Read this comment left by flickr user timothbholloway:

A man named John Frater built this church for the community of coal miners and farmers. Because coal mining was such a huge industry in the area, an English company bought up mines in the area, and the church bell was donated by Queen Victoria of England. Because of her generosity, the community was renamed Victoria in her honor.
