It's a very small town, doesnt have many restaurants but has more banks than it needs. Some of the people are friendly and cost of living is pretty cheap.
I grew up all over Harrison County. I have lived in Bethany 3 times and wouldn't change it for the world. Some may say that I am a small town country girl and never experienced anything beyond it. I say Bethany is a small town with big growth and the community minded people here make it better than any big city ever built.
