OUR SITE

The Fort Bedford Museum was built in 1958 by local business leaders who had a passion for Bedford and its history. The "Block House" was the original structure. Due to the many donations of artifacts, the Museum expanded two more times with gallery space, restrooms, and welcome center.

ORIGINAL FORT FOOTPRINT

The original footprints of Fort Bedford can be seen in the small park located behind the Anderson House at 137 E Pitt Street. It's also accessible  via the walking trail next to the river. Follow the wooden stairway up to the blockade fence.

The Forbes Road, an historic military roadway in what was then British America, was initially completed in 1758 from Carlisle, Pennsylvania, to the French Fort Duquesne at the junction of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers in what is now downtown Pittsburgh, via Fort Loudon, Fort Littleton, Fort Bedford and Fort Ligonier.
