Situated just 12 miles southeast of Cleveland, Bedford is nestled in the heart of the Western Reserve. "Keep Bedford Green" is on the minds of all during the sesquicentennial era. AND -- while that slogan is evident throughout the community, much has transpired in these first 150 years.

Today, more than 500 industries and retail businesses as well as 15,000 residents call Bedford "home." Thirteen new car factory dealers and numerous independents compose the impressive Bedford Automile. Thousands of cars are continuously displayed in this year round Auto Show.

Aircraft, paint, furniture and pharmaceutical products are just a few of the many manufactured items in the bustling industrial sector of Bedford. We also offer the most up to date health care facilities as well as fine police, fire and rescue departments.

A stroll through Bedford today would bring you upon the rolling greens of the Metropark system. Or -- perhaps you will find yourself in front of Bedford High School, home of the Bearcats, whose green and white colors echo the spirit of the community. Whatever direction you are headed, you will be sure to find affordable, attractive housing, houses of worship for all denominations and a fine school system.

Opportunities abound to participate in community service. Bedford has branches of the Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis, Eagles, Zonta, Amvets, Knights of Columbus, American Legion and both the YMCA and YWCA (Southeast). Bedford is also home to VFW Post #1082, the Bedford Historical Society, Southeast Clergy Council, and of course, the Chamber of Commerce.

Again -- welcome to Bedford -- a community where YOU stand out!
