Bedford VA Community

 
 
Location and History
Bedford is nestled at the base of the Peaks of Otter, which are three mountain peaks in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The area also is convenient in location to the Appalachian Trail, perfect for day hikes. History buffs may note that the city is home to many notable historic sites, including Poplar Forest, Thomas Jefferson’s personal retreat. After suffering the heaviest U.S. casualties per capita among its local World War II recruits on D-Day, the city installed the National D-Day Memorial. As a result, the city maintains ties to communities on the Normandy coast of France.

Bedford EducationEducation
Bedford County Public Schools include 15 elementary schools, three middle schools, three high schools and one science and technology center for the county’s high school students. Central Virginia Community College, Lynchburg College, Liberty University and Randolph College also are among the institutions available in the area for those seeking higher education. Virginia Military Institute is an hour away in Lexington, and the city is two hours away from the University of Virginia at Charlottesville and Virginia Tech at Blacksburg.
