Bethlehem is located in Litchfield County and is the home of about 3,523 people. It is Connecticut's "Christmas Town" and also a town of history. It is the founding town of the first theological seminary in the country and the sermons of the Rev. Joseph Bellamy whose home still stands in tact. Bethlehem is also the home of the Regina Laudis Monastery and its exquisite museum quality, 18th century Neapolitan Creche. The late Lauren Ford, a Bethlehem resident who took the co-foundresses of the Abbey into her home when they arrived in Bethlehem, is internationally known for her religious artwork.
