About the book
A book devoted to the history of the entire County of Bedford, Pennsylvania is nearly ready for publication by the Bedford County Historical Society. Copies (to be presented in sets of two bound volumes) will be available for distribution prior to Christmas, 2020.
The book consisting of over 1,000 pages is the first history of the entire county to be published since 1906. But unlike the 1906 volume by E. Howard Blackburn, which was basically a reprint of the 1884 volume published by Waterman, Watkins & Company, this new history is comprised of fully footnoted original text. Maps detailing the evolution of the county's townships were created specifically for the book.
This price refers to the hard cover edition.
