The Bedford General Store

Country store, post office and for many years an antique shop, this small building originally stood on Pound Ridge Road. It was moved to its current site next to the Old Burying Ground in 1890. The Bedford Historical Society purchased it in 1968.  In 2008, after extensive restorations and renovations, the Society moved its offices into the building.  In this multi-purpose space, educational programs are held, rotating exhibits of the Society’s collections may be viewed and in the spirit of its original function as a general store, Bedford souvenirs and penny candy are sold.

The Bedford Historical Society currently has the Red Fox "pop up gallery and shop" in our exhibit space featuring works by local artists and craftspeople along with unique artifacts.
