Bethlehem, in Grafton County, New Hampshire, is partly within the White Mountain National Forest, and home to Cushman State Forest and Strawberry Hill State Forest, with the Appalachian Trail crossing the southern part of town. The unincorporated communities of Maplewood and Pierce Bridge are within the town. Originally known as Lloyd’s Hills, for James Lloyd, the town’s name was changed in 1799, as Lloyd was a Loyalist during the Revolutionary War. Early in its history, the town attracted tourists and an art community, becoming a resort for the rich and famous during the Gilded Age.
