17. A Garden Tour of Bethel

Bethel is a charming village with interesting shops and eateries in the center of town. A stroll through downtown Bethel's Greenwood Avenue Historic District is especially delightful in the spring and summer when you can admire tasteful plantings by the garden club that includes the Shakespeare Garden at the Bethel Library located in the Greek Revival styled Seeley House built in 1842 (189 Greenwoods Ave.), the Veteran's Monument Garden (1 School St.), the Libby Kellogg Garden (West End of Main St.), and the gardens at the Second Meeting House (40 Main St.) and at the Doughboy Statue in PT Barnum Square that was erected in 1932 and is considered to be Bethel's most treasured icon.
