The Bedford Country Historical Society
Invites You To Celebrate Bedford County Day
Elected officials, local historians, and the public will gather on March 9, 2014, at the Bedford County Historical
Society, to celebrate Bedford County's founding on March 9, 1771 and our history.
This year`s celebration will have a theme of the Whiskey Rebellion with Dr. Joseph Gardner as the featured speaker.
There will be music by the Everett High School and Middle School Tribe directed by Sean Cogan, Jamey Clark, and
Ellen Espenshade. The Bedford County Girl Scouts will present the colors and lead the Pledge of Allegiance.
This is the 7th year that the Society is celebrating Bedford County Day, recognizing the formation of Bedford County
out of Cumberland County on March 9, 1771. The BCHS hopes that this celebration will bring the county together in recognition
not only of its founding, but of its many notable moments throughout the nation`s history. Bedford County is rich in heritage
from the early pioneer days through the present, and is recognized for its part in the Whiskey Rebellion, the Bedford Springs
Resort, and its large contribution to the military.
In 2008, the Society produced a Bedford County Flag. We encourage anyone who has one to fly it on March 9 in honor
of this special celebration.
The Bedford County Chamber of Commerce will be handing out Chamber Advantage cards which give discounts to
many local businesses. Also, several local businesses are participating with Bedford County Day specials on March 8 & 9.
