The village of Bethalto is perched upon the edge of the rolling Illinois prairie. Low green hills and picturesque farms frame this attractive community of nearly 10,000 residents. The peaceful setting and relaxed lifestyle make Bethalto an ideal place to raise a family, yet its close proximity to the St. Louis metropolitan area makes it impossible to exhaust the tremendous variety of nearby cultural opportunities and entertainment. Bethalto is home to the St. Louis Regional Airport, a beautiful arboretum, an extensive public library, a community senior citizen center, and several parks with walking paths, fishing lakes, children's playgrounds, pavilions, and ample green space. Additionally, a municipal swimming pool, lighted tennis courts, a skateboard park, a soccer field, a newly remodeled basketball court, and a number of baseball diamonds provide activities for more than 2,000 youths. In Images of America: Bethalto, readers will discover people, businesses, organizations, and events that contributed to the village becoming one of the fastest-growing communities in Madison County.
