Bedford, New Hampshire

Bedford, New Hampshire is the perfect blend of bustling new business and old town flair.  Set halfway between Boston and the White Mountains, Bedford is perfectly located for city commuters and outdoor lovers alike.  Owning a home in Bedford affords residents the convenience of everything from mall shopping to superior recreational facilities while maintaining an honest small-town feel.

First settled in 1737 as Narragansett No. 5, the nearly uninhabited area was also known as Souhegan East.  In 1750 residents petitioned the governor for the town's incorporation.  The governor at the time, Benning Wentworth, granted the request, naming the town "Bedford" after his close friend Lord John Russell, fourth Duke of Bedford.

Currently Bedford New Hampshire has less than 21,000 residents and approximately an 80% residence and 20% business split.  The town has hundreds of acres of preserved land being used for recreation.  Many businesses in Bedford are retail, such as Walmart and Macy's, but also include cinemas, restaurants and museums.  Nearby golf courses, and municipal parks with tennis, basketball, baseball and soccer fields lend to the enjoyment of the fresh air and open spaces in Bedford, where owning a home puts you close to everything but far enough from the city life to breathe freely.  Most retail businesses in Bedford are located on Route 3 and the town's planning committee intends to continue approving businesses only in certain areas of the town in order to maintain its rustic hometown qualities.

The Bedford school district, operating under SAU #25, currently has six schools. Bedford has four elementary schools, McKelvie Intermediate School, Memorial Elementary School, Peter Woodbury Elementary School and the Riddle Brook Elementary School, accommodating pre-school and kindergarten all the way up to fifth grade. The recently completed Ross A. Lurgio Middle School and the Bedford High School will house students in grades seven though twelve and should expand Bedford's potential for student enrollment well into the future.  With an 800-seat auditorium, the capability of housing 2300 students and a huge gymnasium with a 3000 person capacity, these schools are just what this growing community needs.
