Sketch (1879)

The Town of Bedford celebrated its 150th anniversary on August 27, 1879.

An account of that day was published in the booklet Bedford sesqui-centennial celebration (1879). Reproduced in this section is that work’s second part: “A sketch of the Celebration”.

It is unclear who prepared this sketch.

The “Special Committee for Printing the Address, Etc.” was composed of Josiah A. Stearns and Abram English Brown, each of whom would go on to write his own history of Bedford.
