   Like a trip into the past, Claycomb Bridge visitors cross the one-lane Claycomb Covered Bridge on their journey to the Old Bedford Village. Located in southwestern Pennsylvania's Bedford County among the foothills of the Evitts Mountain Ridge, this historic site has all the makings of an authentic 18th century village. On a stroll through town, visitors will pass by dozens of old structures that house workshops, mercantile shops, residential homes (log cabins), a one room octagonal school house, and even a wishing well. The village wouldn't be complete without its apothecary, jailhouse and a variety of old churches. Period homes have all the authentic furnishings, such as pewter dishes, four-poster beds with straw mattresses, and great stone fireplaces. Village Cooper - Old Bedford Village, PA
   The village puts on various craft shows, demonstrating coopering, quilting, candle making, baking, and blacksmithing. Guests are invited to test their own candle making skills, use a spinning wheel or punch out a tin plate souvenir.
   Hungry? Enjoy lunch at the Pendergrass Tavern, or pick up a snack at the bakery and ice cream parlor. At the general store, youngsters, both young and old, will be able to enjoy a collection of penny candies. Not only a fun time, but the Old Bedford Village can also be an enjoyable history lesson.
