Gun Raffle winner

Bedford County celebrated its 250th anniversary on Tuesday with a ceremony outside the courthouse.

A small crowd gathered to listen to speeches from local historian Larry Smith and Senior Judge Thomas Ling, as well as a blessing on the Sesterentennial year from Rev. Martin Wickens of the Bedford Bible Church.

The ceremony was intended as a `kick off` to other events from the Bedford County Historical Society to celebrate the anniversary this year.
