Asbury United Methodist Church and Bethel Chapel and Cemetery is a national historic district comprised of a Methodist church, chapel, and cemetery at 19 Old Post Road in Croton on Hudson. Built in 1883, the church is considered Gothic revival in style and features an intricately patterned slate roof and brick tower. The roof recently underwent renovation, as did the magnificent stained glass windows. The Bethel Chapel, located in the Bethel Cemetery, was built circa 1780 and is a clapboard structure.
Asbury is home to a dynamic active fellowship and is known for—among other things—its Spring Tag Sale and Annual Pre-Race Pasta Party in conjunction with the Harry Chapin Race Against Hunger.
