About

This site is a collection of material related to “Beth-Shan” – Rutherford’s “House of Security” – in San Diego, CA.  The collection is being used to digitally reconstruct Beth-Shan as it would have been during Rutherford’s lifetime.  In-progress images of the reconstruction will be posted as more information becomes available.

While the story of Beth-Shan has been told in some detail, very few images and no architectural drawings have ever been made public.  Because images often speak louder than words, it is hoped that this effort to create accurate drawings and digital renderings will contribute to the overall awareness and understanding of Beth-Shan.
