Seedy Looking Characters and Gun Shots in the Village

Gun shots have been ringing out in the Village and some strange looking men are in the streets of Old Bedford Village.  We have heard that numerous stage coaches have been held up throughout the area.  Come and join us on 26-27 June to learn about how the West was won (or lost.)

What do soldiers from the North and South have in common -- they love to spend the evening with their ladies dancing on the lawn.

Old Bedford Village has launched a $1M Infrastructure Project and is turning the Old in for the New. We have become an affiliate with www.gazelle.com to help raise funds to rehab many of our structures. Our 200+ old structures are in constant need of maintenance.

With the help of our friends, we can help you clear out some of the old in your home and bring in the new revitalization of our living history museum. Tale a look at any old electronics you have collecting dust and go to our new recycling page at www.oldbedfordvillage.gazelle.com. Gazelle pays for the postage and will even send you a box (recycle a box if you have a spare.)

The Yanks pushed the Confederates southward on 19 Jul

It was a fierce battle on the banks of the Juniata.  The Confederates tried to take Old Bedford Village, but the Yanks pushed them back towards the village of Bedford.  It was a hot day in the 90's with almost as much humidity, so if soldiers didn't drop from bullets, they dropped from the heat.

The Troops are Arriving

As of today, we see some strange fellows arriving at Old Bedford Village.  A few tents are being pitched in the fields along the Juniata River.  Not sure if they are from the North or South, but they are stirring interest in Bedford PA  Seems like they could be a little bit of a lazy bunch.  Maybe it is these hot northern days.
