Great trip for old and young. A Colonial Village setting with period dressed workers. Each house offers education on living during colonial days. Houses are staged with household items and tools of each trade. There are demonstrations in some of the houses and some hands on. The staff is very informative. Check the website for special events which are offered... More

I really enjoyed my experience during the 1820's Folkways event. What I enjoyed the most was having my daughter attend church at 1pm. The teacher was great. I also enjoyed the doctor, blacksmith and pottery man. More important, my daughter had a great except when she complained about the heat.

My husband and I visited Old Bedford Village on a hot summer afternoon. We didn't go to all the buildings, but the ones we did go to were very interesting. The lady in the candle making house was very informative on how candles were made during that time period. The man in the house that had guns during that time... More

Really enjoyed this place. Great collection of buildings and artifacts. Kids enjoyed talking to the artisans who were patient and kind. Check out the potter who is especially great. Great to walk the kids around in.

At the visitor center they give you a map with a bit of history of each house/business and a few of the... More

This may be my favorite historical place in Bedford, and there are many. If you go during October, you can catch the Murder Mystery tours, but any time of the year, there are things to see and do. It is just like you stepped back in time, with original buildings and reinactors. Take the kids if you wish. Wonderful place.
