To celebrate the birth of Bethesda, the Bethesda Historical Society has launched a new exhibit.

The exhibit features comparisons of Bethesda through the decades, old artifacts such as former maps, and photos of Bethesda's more prominent community members through its history.

The public is welcome to visit the Bethesda Historical Society’s Exhibit at the Connie Morella Library (7400 Arlington Road).

Celebrate Bethesda with a visit today!

New Bethesda history displays at the Connie Morella Library were just installed by our wonderful volunteers! Come see Bethesda artifacts donated by Bob Hope's foundation. Learn about the 1954 B-CC "boy gang" that threw a pipe bomb into the Bethesda Library on Moorland Avenue. See the new "then & now" gallery wall. Check out Bethesda's long lost restaurants and theaters - and much more during regular library hours.   

Thank you Bethesda's 150th Birthday Boosters!
