Day of Reflection - 9/11
Thursday, September 11th - 11 to 4pm
1787 Court House, Museum & Garden
We are participating in a community-wide "Day of Service" in remembrance of September 11, 2001. The Court House and Memorial Garden will be open for reflection.
Built in 1787, the year the U. S. Constitution was drafted (on September 17th) the Bedford Court House is Westchester’s oldest government building that is still standing. It also contains the oldest jail cell in Westcthester. On the second floor is the Bedford Museum, tracing the history of Bedford from its founding in 1680.
The Garden was originally established in 1991 by the Bedford Garden Club in memory of Louise Renwick. It was reimagined this summer to honor Linda Wilson, another Garden Club member, ,and is now if full bloom with a combination of perennials, annuals and herbs. A wonderful place to sit, share lunch or a snack with friends and learn about the different herbs and plants.
Everyone is welcome to come and visit, sit and reflect.
The Bedford Fire Dept. is collecting winter coats and non-perishable food items and the Bedford Presbyterian Church is having a blood drive on Thursday.
