Stevens-Buswell Community Center
Vision for the Future Community Center for Bedford, NH.
The Stevens-Buswell Community Center will be a unique asset that will enhance the quality of life in Bedford for both young and old, including our children, our grandchildren, and our senior citizens.
Members of the Friends of the Stevens-Buswell Community Center (a sub committee of the Bedford Historical Society) eagerly look forward to opening the building for use by members of the community. The need for a community center has been discussed in master plans for the Town of Bedford as very little meeting space currently exists for organizations in town. In addition, the original Stevens-Buswell School was named to honor the memory of two men (Willis A. Stevens and Frank A. Buswell) who died while serving their country during World War I. Therefore, the Stevens-Buswell Community Center will become a permanent veterans’ memorial here in town as well.
