Rural is Beautiful.

Rural evokes a sense of our agricultural past. Rural accepts and acknowledges some diversity in its natural and man-made surroundings. We are rural and rural goes hand-in-hand with our sense of community and belonging.

Over 58% of Bethany’s land is undeveloped, either protected open space or privately held undeveloped land, be it farm, field or forest. Our rural landscape is accessible and enticing; it tempts you to spend time outdoors enjoying it.

Stop in at any of our local shops, stores, or farms and you’ll find friendly people who will remember your name the next time they see you. Bethany is the only rural town in New Haven County and rural is what makes Bethany unique.
