Bedford is located in picturesque South-Central Pennsylvania. Incorporated in 1795, Bedford was a frontier military post for many years and the (now reconstructed) Fort Bedford served as a refuge against French soldiers and hostile Native Americans. The town is historically significant as George Washington called almost 13,000 militiamen to Bedford during the Whiskey Rebellion to make a statement against impending anarchy and a rebel uprising.

Barton, MD

Barton, Maryland is an adorable township located between Lonaconing and Westernport along the Georges Creek Valley.  The Reverend William Shaw, a Methodist minister settled on this picturesque site of Allegany County in 1794. His son, William Shaw Jr. laid out the town in 1853, naming it for his father’s hometown: Barton, England.

Barton

Shortly after settlement, the discovery of coal in the area shaped Barton’s future. The Georges Creek Rail Road and many settlers came to the area to work in the rich mines and Barton flourished. Today most of the coal miners have vacated and many of the families are supported by other types of employment such as farming and manufacturing.

Barton is listed on the National Register of historical places with Shaw mansion being added in 1985. Barton is noted for having the first gristmill powered by a water wheel. Several mills were added along the Moores Run River in Barton, however they were all torn down by 1961.

You can still see the rich history of this town in its topography and through its resilient people.  In 2016 the Census reported the population of Barton was 431 people. This statistic truly speaks about Barton’s small town charm. As a modest community in a serine mountain setting, Barton’s locals are genuine and neighborly.  An annual parade through town celebrates the citizen’s congenial community spirit and can-do attitudes about their hometown.
