The Friends of the Town of Bedford Cemeteries is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that supports the preservation and maintenance of the four historic cemeteries in The Town of Bedford. Historical cemeteries are open air museums that reflect a community and its heritage. They tell the story of a locale and its people, highlighting a community’s achievements and cultural values. They reflect our past and the people who built Bedford. Preserving the cemeteries reveals a strong community spirit and serves as a source of community pride for future generations.
