Church at Beth Page
Posted by: Linda Williams (ID *****8046) Date: November 29, 2010 at 18:08:29

Prior to the Civil War there was a community near Estil Springs known as Beth Page. There was a church there. I understand that there also was a bridge crossing the Elk River near there, and the pews, pulpit and other pieces of wood were used by one side (perhaps the Rebs)to burn the bridge after crossing so that the other side (Yankees)could not. Does anyone have info about the facility or the cemetery, or any info pertaining to any documents that may have survived.
