BEDFORD HISTORIC DISTRICT
BEDFORD, PLAN TO STAY
U.S. Route 30, also known as the Lincoln Highway, passes through Bedford. Up until the opening of the Pennsylvania Turnpike in 1940, U.S. Route 30 was the key east-west route connecting Philadelphia to the west. The Bedford Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
Our Board of Directors are made up
of merchant and community members
who are invested in our town.
If you would like to be more involved
in helping our town thrive, volunteer
or join one of our committees.
