Bethlehem is one of the northwest townships of the County and was incorporated in 1798. Its original boundaries encompassed the present township of Kingwood, Alexandria, Franklin, Union and Holland. The Musconetcong River forms its northern border with Warren County. The northern half of the Township consists of the beautiful Musconetcong Valley while the southern half is covered by the Musconetcong Mountains.

It has been determined that the first settlers of the Township were mainly Hollanders and they came here in the early part of the last century. Many of the descendents of these settlers still retain properties or portions of the original purchases made by their ancestors.
