The Bedford Historical Society is located at 612 Old Post Road in Bedford, NY in The Bedford Store building. We provide information on Bedford’s history and current events and host educational programs. We also operate a small gift shop offering our publications, Bedford gifts and more in the spirit of the building’s original use as a general store.

The front of our office currently hosts Red Fox Art Gallery which features fine and decorative arts for sale.
