Where: If the weather is good, we will meet at the Bedford Green sign (see photo above) on the Village Green across from the Fire House (34 Village Green) in Bedford, NY at 10:50 a.m. for an 11:00 tour start time. If it is raining, we will meet at Historical Hall, 608 Old Post Road.
The map below shows the Village and parking areas. Street parking is limited to one hour, so it is best to park either behind the Bedford Presbyterian Church - in the middle, not along the fence which is marked permit parking only - or in the lot off Court Road, behind the Playhouse building where we will have lunch at Bedford 234 after the walking tour.
