COMMITTED TO OUR COMMUNITY

The Bedford County Chamber of Commerce is committed to the continued prosperity of area businesses and residents.

While not immune to the headwinds of the national economic downturn, Bedford County has a thriving business community that has grown significantly in recent years with the addition of manufacturers, distribution centers and lodging establishments.

Small communities connected by fields, streams, and highways form the backbone of Bedford County, which was established in 1771, from parts of Cumberland County.

Named for the fort that tamed the area for the settlers to follow, the area is still a popular stopping point for weary travelers. In recent years, the area has become not just a stop along the way, but a destination, since the restoration of the beautiful, historic Bedford Springs Resort.
