South Bethlehem


South Bethlehem (formely Janes' Corners) was, in 1897, a station on the West Shore Railroad. Early settlers included William Janes, John and Henry Callanan, Ambrose Wiltsie, and Elishama Janes who opened a tavern here. A tannery was built about 1825, operated for many years by Robert Carhart. The post office was opened in 1874. William McGee was postmaster in 1897. [1]
