Bethel Historical Society

"The Golden Age of the Gehring Clinic” new exhibit opens May 31.   From the website: This exhibit will tell the story of Dr. John George Gehring and his Bethel clinic. A pioneer in the treatment of what were then called "nervous disorders," Gehring developed an innovative regimen of mental and physical techniques in the era before Freudian theories were popularized in America. His practice brought a large number of prominent and interesting people to Bethel, including, most consequentially, William Bingham, 2nd, who became a benefactor for Gould Academy, and significantly shaped its development.  Read more here
