Where the past meets the present
Old Bedford Village is where the past comes to life! Take a walk through history and be transported to rural Pennsylvania before it was transformed by industry and technology. You’ll relive simpler times as historical interpreters demonstrate the trades and crafts of villagers in preserved structures built during the 18th and 19th centuries. Don’t just read about the past- experience it through hands-on activities that connect the past to the present.

Help make history come alive
At the heart of Old Bedford Village is our community of volunteers! Without them, our mission of preserving our history and connecting it to the present in real and meaningful ways would not be possible. If you’ve got a skill to share or a willingness to help, there’s a place for you at Old Bedford Village. We have a wide range of volunteer opportunities for any skill level, so whether you’re an amateur or a master artisan, you can lend a helping hand!
