“BECHYNE is a rural community centered around Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Secs. 12 and 13-155-58, Perth Twp. A townsite was developed by the brothers Frank and John Hodny, and Msgr. Vaclav F. Mikolasek (1878-1950) was the long-time priest at the church. The name is taken from Bechyne, Bohemia, a holy place in Czechoslovakia. Pioneer settler, Joseph Bosh, was born there in 1858, and is thought to have suggested the name.” 2
