The Peoria, Decatur & Evansville Railway


For many years there was a water tank located on the west bank of the West Okaw river two miles east of Bethany.  It is amazing that they made a post card of it.  (Unknown Photographer)  Thomas French Collection


Originally built in 1880, the Bethany depot was lost due to fire circa 1923 and replaced with the brick depot seen below.
