Summary

Bedford can trace its roots as far back as 5800 BC, as evidence of early Native American civilizations has been found. Once described as a "prehistoric turnpike," Bedford was known for Native American migrations. Many tribes passed through and even settled in the area, including the Monongahela tribe who lived here in AD 1300. Bedford continued to play an important role in not only Pennsylvania but also American history during the 18th century. The area saw the movement of troops and the construction of Fort Bedford, which played an integral role in the French and Indian War. Also in town is the building that served as a temporary command post for George Washington during the Whiskey Rebellion. During the 19th and 20th centuries, the Bedford Springs Hotel was known as the summer White House and played host to countless world dignitaries and many U.S. presidents. With more than 200 photographs, Bedford and Its Neighbors extols the historical relevance of this proud Pennsylvania community.
