Mount Bethel is a small rural community located off State Highway 34 about five miles south of Greenville in central Hunt County. The town probably existed by the early 1900s, and Mount Bethel had its own county school district. In the 1930s highway maps showed a school, church, cemetery, and farms in the area. The community stayed primarily residential, but no population figures were available throughout the twentieth century. In 2000 some residents pushed for incorporation, but the measure failed to pass in an election held in May 2001.
