Bethel Island is a census-designated place on Bethel Island in Contra Costa County, California, United States. The population was 2,137 at the 2010 census. The first post office opened in 1898, and named for its first postmaster Franklin Cloud Bethell. The second "L" was dropped by a rather pious postal commissioner that reportedly felt it would be ungodly to allow the new location to be called "Bet Hell", and took liberties to change it to "Bethel" , meaning "House of God" in Hebrew. The post office closed in 1902. A Post Office re-opened on Bethel Island in 1947. In 1898, Franklin was appointed Post Master for the local post office, ran out of his house near Horseshoe Bend. Prior to 1898, mail was delivered to the Post Office at Jersey Landing, and special service carried mail to the Sand Mound Ranch from there. Franklin's post office closed in 1902, however the name Bethel was now officially tied to the locality. Ann Bethell amassed a considerable fortune through both farming ventures, and through real estate investments in downtown San Jose. In the late 1800's, she constructed the "Bethell Block" in the 200 block of South 1st Street in San Jose, which today is the location of the Federal Court building.
