Old Bedford School
In 1914 Woodrow Wilson was the President of the United States, the Panama Canal had just opened, and World War I had begun. During this year, the citizens of Bedford agreed to a bond project for $5,000.00 to build a new school on Bedford Road for the children of Bedford. Nearly unanimous support for the construction of the school bonds demonstrated the deep and sincere commitment of the residents toward public education. When completed, the school was the largest structure in the area and dominated the local landscape for many years on one of the highest elevations in Bedford.
