West Bethlehem Township, in Washington County, was established in 1790. It was once part of the original township of Bethlehem from 1781 to 1790. There are majestic hills with incredible views of Scenery Hill, Washington, Marianna, and Uniontown. On many roads one can walk an hour or more without a single car passing. And when a car does pass, one finds it's not a car at all but a tractor! 

The largest body of water passing through West Bethlehem Township is Ten Mile creek. The creek normally has a short navigation period from April to early May. Anything before or after this time there is often low water levels  or it's too cold. Occasionally,  there is unusual rainfall in the summer that may extend the period for boating, but often it causes  dangerous water conditions.   Nonetheless, Ten Mile Creek is a peaceful place to visit and there are nice fishing spots.
