Bethany Brethren Church

Picture of property 121 1st Street
Hamlin (Brown County)
Listed in National Register 2012-10-09

Architect: unknown
Category: religious facility

Hamlin is located nine miles northwest of Hiawatha in Brown County, Kansas. The development of the community was jumpstarted by the arrival of the St. Joseph and Grand Island Railroad in the early 1870s. Two churches were established - Congregational and Baptist - and they erected places of worship in Hamlin by 1887. The Brethren denomination followed soon after with the construction of their building in about 1895. The Brethren worshippers attended religious services in this building until 1948. They sold the property to the local Baptist congregation in 1951, which still owns and occupies the building. The building reflects a vernacular interpretation of the Gothic Revival style executed in wood materials - also commonly referred to as Carpenter Gothic. This is the only remaining church building in Hamlin, and it is nominated to the National Register of Historic Places for its local significance in the area of architecture.
