How Membership Matters

Without the Historical Society's Preservation Efforts, Bedford would NOT be Bedford!

It's easy to take the historic charm of Bedford for granted. Preserved buildings tell the story of people who value history and all we've ever known is Bedford at its best. Our members make this preservation possible.

Join, renew or make a donation so future generations will be able to enjoy the beauty of the place we call home.
