Step back in time

The Job Lane House is Bedford's colonial treasure. Built around 1713 by one of Bedford's founding families, it has been beautifully restored. Guides in colonial dress give tours. Click here to see tour dates.

We are especially proud of the Rufus Porter murals in the parlor.

Our Gift Shop is open on tour days. Come and shop any time, whether or not you plan to stay for a tour or event.

Coming events

Make a kite, fly a kite!

Saturday, April 15, 2-4 PM. Family kitemaking. Make a Frustrationless Flyer kite from a kit ($5), decorate it to your heart's content, and send it aloft! Even the youngest children can get this one into the air. Or bring your own kite to fly. No admission charge. Sorry, no house tours today.
