In 1916 when concerned residents came together to save Historical Hall, they did more than save a building - they protected a unique and enduring sense of place that continues to define Bedford. Today we’re asking you to come together to help us build on a century of preservation and create a new legacy for all who love Bedford. Please help us as we begin our second century of Stewardship!

Thank you for all the ways you’ve supported the Bedford Historical Society in our Centennial year.
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.
