Images Sought For Book On Bethalto

Story by WBGZ Radio

The history of the village of Bethalto will be showcased in a book to be released later this year by Arcadia Publishing. The book, titled "Images of America: Bethalto, is being authored by Bethalto Mayor Steve Bryant and resident Jeff Allsman. The authors are now seeking the public's help with the project through a call for images.

Allsman says they are looking for any old photographs showing what the village looked like or who was there between the mid-1850's and mid-1950's.  

Allsman comment

The book will feature short chapters with most of the story told through photographs. Allsman says that all proceeds from the book will go to operating the Bethalto History Museum.

No release date has been announced but the authors are hopeful to have it available for purchase at the Bethalto Homecoming.
