Bedford: Old Bedford School

World War I was underway when a principal, four teachers and students moved into the new Bedford School in 1915. Outgrown by 1969, the redbrick building was all but gutted by fire in 1991. Community efforts restored the National Register schoolhouse to its original Classical Revival style. The Old Bedford School now is a visitor’s center and performance hall with music and theater in a large auditorium. Its authentically furnished classroom depicts education in the early 20th century.
