OUR MISSION

The Bedford Heritage Trust is a 501(c)(3) non-profit  corporation that supports efforts by Bedford residents and civic organizations to preserve our county’s distinctive history and heritage.

The Bedford Heritage Trust assumed responsibility for the revitalization of Fort Bedford Museum in 2014. Its team of museum professionals has now cataloged the 5,000 object collection,  implemented educational programs that have inspired hundreds of students, and transformed two of the museum’s three galleries into world-class interpretive exhibits.
