Old Bedford Village

Like a trip into the past, visitors cross the one-lane Claycomb Covered Bridge on their journey back in time 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, residental 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.
