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.

My husband and I decided to take in the attractions in the town of our hotel. We hit it right with the fall special event going on. Which meant all the Artisans were there dressed in costume of the era. Watching the Potter and the Blacksmiths at work was very interesting. We loved the old buildings with the period furniture...

My now wife and I stopped here last year on our way home from Washington DC. The trip happened to be during a heatwave that led us here burnt and tired. It was a great little stop that we are constantly recommending.

We arrived close to closing time but still wanted to go in. Had a lot of interaction with the folks doing the reenactments who told is a lot of the history of the homes and what everything was used for. Definitely a good stop and great to see the history of the homes and buildings being able to live on.

I remember going to obv as a kid. We went every few years but haven't been there in 10 years. It was so disappointing this year. Some if the buildings are falling apart, others are closed, and the rest were so dirty. Its sad there are not many places left like this. The village needs alot of work.

We took our young children to visit the Village and they thoroughly enjoyed it. Several of the buildings had costumed guides who spoke about their jobs and the buildings. All of the buildings had some signage to help the interpretation. It's a great spot for children. It's a living history museum and not a "don't touch" museum. You get the... More
