Live craftsmen.

We spent a few hours and stopped in the "old saloon" for some lemonade and root beer. Good for family, would suggest you don't go on a hot day or start early.

Even though it was very hot the day we visited, the experience was enjoyable. There was potter and a blacksmith there demonstrating their craft. The day we visited, the 'union generals' were planning a presentation later in the day. So, the houses, store, tavern were mostly unoccupied as they were all visiting together in the town center. I would have... More

We happened upon Old Bedford Village while looking for someplace to visit before heading home to eastern Pennsylvnia. It's very close to the Bedford exit on the PA Turnpike, so convenience was a factor. It was so unpretentious from the outside we almost didn't go in; what a blunder that would have been! After paying a modest admission fee ($10... More

A beautiful place to bring the family. Nice open area where kids can run and learn about the historic parts of our country.

This was a place to just stroke around and enjoy! The volunteer staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The kids loved the potter's shop. The horses slobbered a lot!!

This is a neat collection of old wooden houses, some are log homes, it is similar to lots of other collections. There is a nice area for re-enactments.

Found this little gem while on a family get away. Our 6 year old loved it as did we. Interesting history. Everyone that was a "resident" of the village was very knowledgeable of who they were playing the part of. Every one of them was great with kids as well. We will definitely be back in the future

The property houses period homes and shops and is a wonderful stop for families with children. It does not have the upper end homes and history that surrounds Williamsburg, VA, but does give a thorough history of what life was like during the late 1700's in the country. Explainations are geared to all ages and the entrace price is in... More

The guides were really informative! The kids learned a lot and really enjoyed the hands on experience! I strongly recommend to other families! It's a great way to learn about early American history
