Incorporated in 1729, the initial community of fifty households survived on farming and requisite industries. The Town’s history is documented in the Bedford collection at the Bedford Public Library. Visitors are drawn to view historic sites including homes, the Old Burying Ground, The Wilson Mill, the Job Lane House and the original Bedford Flag that was taken to the battle of Lexington and Concord in 1775. A historic park commemorating railroad activity in Bedford is planned by the town with support from Friends of Depot Park. Exploring Bedford, a walking/biking tour guide describing these sites is available at the Library and the Bedford Chamber.
