A Cast of 19th Century Bedford Characters ~ Sunday, February 27, at 2 pm ~ A Program Presented by the Bedford Historical Society

~ Submitted by the Bedford Historical Society

Bedford Town Historian Sharon McDonald

There are several Bedford folks that you don’t often hear about, but Sharon McDonald promises her four short biographies of 19th century residents will be interesting and just a tad quirky. Their names will be a secret until the program but here’s a hint: they are a newspaper editor, a suffragist, a doctor, and a pioneer.

McDonald is eager to talk about local history at any opportunity to any audience. Appointed Bedford Town Historian by the Select Board in 2014, she loves researching all things Bedford, and has written three books about the town that are for sale at the Historical Society.

The program will be offered in person at Old Town Hall (masks required), and virtually through ZOOM.  Those interested in attending via Zoom should email the Society (info@bedfordmahistory.org) for the link.
