Bedford

The small town of Bedford maintains a rural yet stately sophistication, scattered with historic colonial homes and grazing horse pastures. The town is comprised of three hamlets—Bedford Village, Bedford Hills, and Katonah—with Metro-North stations located in the latter two.

Many celebrities are associated with the town of Bedford, including Martha Stewart and Richard Gere, owner of the Bedford Post Inn. Located in Katonah are two notable art centers—the Katonah Museum of Art and the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, which serve as major cultural assets to Bedford and neighboring towns.

With over 100 linear miles of trails throughout Bedford and Pound Ridge and a central Village Green, this town provides a tranquil countryside experience for its residents.
