Bedford County , Pennsylvania
List of Schools


Prior to the passage of The Public School Act in Pennsylvania in 1834, many of the county schools
were held in private dwellings. The One Room Public School houses that were constructed throughout
the county as the differing townships accepted the Act of 1834, provided the basis and the focus
of the educational process for the next one hundred years.
The following is a listing of some pictures of these school houses
and / or students and teachers that attended these schools.

.....If you don't have a picture or school item to share, you won't have to stay after school clean all the erasers, or arrive early tomorrow to carry in the drinking water, but
.....your classmates will really appreciate seeing whatever you might have to contribute!

School pictures can be a terrific way of attaching faces to some of those names in your family pages.
If you have a Bedford County School photo or class list, or memorabilia that you would like to share,
it certainly will be a big help to lots of other researchers. Please contact me for details at:
