Bethabara Baptist Church

Bethabara, located in Daviess county, eight miles southeast from Owensboro, was constituted in 1826. Among its early pastors, was that devoted man of God, Reuben Cottrell. It has been a very prosperous body, and, in 1881, was next to the largest country church in the Association. The remaining churches of this Association are comparatively young.
