A Historical Perspective
Bedford County was Established Dec.31, 1807. Tim and Helen Marsh work under State guidelines to preserve Bedford County Records. Some records are permanent and are preserved, while other records can be destroyed after a number of years. In March of 1863 Confederate soldiers made a fire to keep warm, but it spread to engulf the old courthouse and destroy most of the records. The archives room in the Courthouse was opened to the public in 1998.
