Membership Matters

Annual Membership is the foundation that makes our work possible. Your participation in special events and campaigns allows us to expand our initiatives but, ultimately, we rely on membership to fund a significant portion of our budget. 

Membership dollars are used to maintain our landmark buildings, provide educational programs and community events, and to operate museums at the 1787 Court House and 1829 School House. Without your membership, all this would not be possible.

When you look around Bedford Village, you see how your membership matters! Please renew, join or make your donation today.

Success! $2,000,000 Raised!

Thank you for making our Centennial Capital Campaign a success. With your help we were able to raise $2 million which will be used for:

  • Properties Acquisition & Preservation

  • Property Capital Reserve Fund

  • Establishment of an Endowment

The Historical Society has preserved Bedford's historic charm since our founding in 1916. As we begin our next century of stewardship, we are well positioned to meet the challenges of the future thanks to you. If you would like to learn more about future plans, please visit our Campaign page.
