Lounsbery Building – 1906

38 Village Green
Of Greek Revival style, the store adjoining the Post Office was built by Richard P. Lounsbery to replace a nearby one that had been burned down. It always housed a store and was the village A & P for many years. While the Atlantic & Pacific grocery store chain identified itself by having a red storefront, this building had a different distinction. It was the only A & P with a white storefront as the owner, Edith Colgate, one of the founders of The Bedford Historical Society, made that a condition of the lease. In 1972, the building was purchased from Mrs. Colgate’s heirs and is currently leased to the Horse Connection.
