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.
