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.

I have seen a few re-created villages from homes that were either moved or re-built to a location, but this was the most homes that I have ever seen that most came right from the town of Bedford. 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.

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.
