Great place to learn about history. They had a bunch of different buildings moved there and rebuilt to preserve history. The buildings were all open but certain ones had people in them demonstrating different crafts. They were demonstrating candle making, Iron works, broom making, etc. Apparently each day offers different demonstrating. They also had a general store with a post office and checkers and benches that you could play to show you the way life would have been during that era. They had a shop where you could get hot dogs and such to eat and the food was reasonable prices. They have special event weekends as well such as Civil war demonstrations, Old West and others so be sure to check their schedule. It only cost $10 a person to get in so it is not expensive.

A most unusual gift shop, with a museum featuring taxidermied animals.

Stopped by for the first time after passing it hundreds of times, and found the best collection of Pirates, Steelers, and Penguins memorabilia I have ever seen. There was something for everyone -- includung non-Pittsburgh team enthusiasts ... al kinds of jerseys, videos, hats, and other ways to show that you are a fan. I will stop by again!

National Museum of the American Coverlet

NMAC is the only full-time, year-round, independent institution devoted to the display, preservation and study of (antique) American woven coverlets. The Museum is open seven days a week. Each visitor is given a personal tour.Currently, the (500-plus) collection includes coverlets made between 1771 and 1889. Exhibitions change periodically. Generally there are about 80 coverlets on display along with "period" beds and bedding, and spinning and weaving equipment including looms and a (rare) Jacquard head. We are located in a former Common School building (dating to 1859) in the historic district of downtown Bedford, PA.

Fascinating information engagingly presented about a subject many would find boring. The owner/curator husband & wife team offer an in-depth history of this art that is seen nowhere else in America. A definite must-visit for anyone interested in the textile arts.

Everett Railroad Station Museum

Reviewed By sturmvogel2016 - Gibsonia, Pennsylvania

We visited the old Train Depot in Everett, PA over this past Labor Day weekend after running out of time to visit last Labor Day. It's only open Saturdays from 11 am - 4 pm, April thu October

The fact that the town still has this beautiful old Passenger Station plus the Freight Depot building is amazing; when you talk to the staff there on-site. The story about how the Steam Locomotive was returned home is equally amazing. There is much to look at and see here, both in the Passenger Station as well as the Freight Depot. Many old photos, railroad memorabilia, farm implements, old one lung gas engines, etc.

Their old wooden caboose has been a labor of love. When you see how it came to them and the job they did restoring it to its current state, well, it’s incredible. An enormous amount of work went into this caboose!

We were squired around the site by a lovely woman whose name, I’m ashamed to say, I never got. She was an enormous wealth of information about the town, the trains, and the depot and just about everything else that had to do with Everett, PA!

I would be remiss if I didn’t slip in here a comment on how much I enjoyed the town of Everett, PA as well. It’s a genuine small town like they used to be, but don’t seem to be anymore; I felt like I had come home driving around the town.

Also, this small town can claim not one but two Congressional Medal of Honor recipients; remember, you don’t ‘win’ the Medal of Honor, you EARN it. There must be some sturdy stock in those parts of Pennsylvania!

If you are in the area, or just passing thru, take the time to stop by and see this place.

Bedford County Covered Bridge Driving Tour

Bedford County is blessed with 14 covered bridges. Built approximately 100 years ago by craftsmen who worked almost entirely by hand, these structures withstand the rain, snow and hard use of the traveling public. The county's bridges range in length from the 136 foot Herline Bridge near Manns Choice, PA to the 56 foot Palo Alto bridge south of Hyndman. Twelve spans are Burr-truss bridges, named after their designer, Theodore Burr. These bridges are held in place by a set of trusses that interact with the arch that spans the length of the bridges, creating added strength. A lot of people ask, "Why did they cover the bridges?". One answer is that wooden bridges with exposed superstructures can rot ... covering and roofing them protects them from the weather so they'll last longer.

Reviewed By juridicus2017 - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

For aficionados of history this is a great way to see the Bedford County countryside in a leisurely way. There are a number of good photographic opportunities. Some bridges do not present great parking locations so care must be taken if you wish to get out of the car and walk over or around the bridges.

Roadside Giants of the Lincoln Highway

Reviewed By FromSea2ShiningC - Mansfield, Ohio

"Large metal statue of a George Washington head quarter. Part of the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor's Roadside Giants project, designed and constructed by students. Bedford County Technical Center built an oversized quarter with George Washington's profile (20-ft. diameter and weighs nearly one ton).The quarter was chosen for the Roadside Giants of the Lincoln Highway project due to Washington's strong connections to Bedford County. Washington stayed at the famous Espy House on Pitt Street, and often drank at the Fraser Tavern, commonly known as the Graystone, during the French and Indian War. This Giant is installed at the entrance of Down River Golf Course, just east of Everett. Directions: On the south side of US Hwy 30 Business, just east of Everett at the entrance to the Down River Golf Course."
This was the last stop of our evening, and we got there as the sun was beginning to set. I think that created a nice background for photos. It's quarky, only takes a few minutes, but worth a stop if passing through. It's probably one of those things once you've done it, you won't return, or at least not often.

Fort Bedford Museum

Reviewed By sturmvogel2016 - Gibsonia, Pennsylvania

This was a great little museum tucked just behind where the original fort stood and along the river.

There is a little bit of everything in here telling the story of Bedford and the area from over 200 years ago up thru the mid 20th century. A Civil War Cannon and Caisson built by a fellow in Bedford back in 1861. Woodworking tools, old photographs of the area and the people. One of an infant dead in the water after the Johnstown Flood is especially poignant.

There are a number of horse drawn wagons and sleighs that are interesting, one a US Mail delivery sleigh from 1907.

The English flag on the wall in the main room was interesting if only for the fact that after 250 years or so, it's still there and in one piece.

The lady on staff was exceptionally pleasant and helpful and there is a small museum store on-site for any memento's that you would like to take home with you.

Not necessarily about the Fort, but in front of the Fort is a very nice bike path and playground / picnic area for families; a number of younger boys were fishing off the dam even.

Stopped in and had a tasting. Only $5 and tasted 10 very good wines. We chatted with Olivia for probably an hour and she is delightful with lots of knowledge. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this tasting room. Would come back again. Bought two bottles the Cab Franc is tremendous.
