Bedford Historical Society

A Celebration of Seuss

 

On Saturday, February 29, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, join the Bedford Historical Society & Museum in the Old Church on the Commons Lower Community Hall as we let our inner Seuss loose and celebrate the legendary author’s birthday! This children’s program will include games, handicraft activities, refreshments, special guests and feature the reading of classic Dr. Seuss books.

Admission is FREE and welcome to all little Whos, children ages 10 and under, and their families for a fun filled day of surprises for all! Children MUST be accompanied by an adult parent or guardian (18 years or older). Volunteers are welcome and are necessary for this event to be a success for everyone. If you enjoy working with children and their families, planning parties, like to bake, or enjoy reading aloud, please contact Louise Novak (novak.louise@gmail.com) or call 216-870-3999 to discuss volunteer opportunities.

1892 Old Baptist Church

The Late Gothic Revival style building has an interior Akron Plan design. Jacob Snyder was the architect of this popular design inspired by the Protestant Sunday School movement in the late 1800s. Snyder died before the building was completed. It has classic elements including a sloped sanctuary with curved pews and Sunday school classrooms radiating out from the main meeting area. The sanctuary also has a restored 1914 Moeller pipe organ, beautiful stained glass windows and a lead lined baptistery designed for full immersion.

  • Renovated sanctuary pews and original lectern;
  • 1914 Moeller Pipe Organ
