Bedford County Vistor's Center

Bedford County visitor's center.


Natural wonders and relics of the past lie hidden along

the banks of Bedford County waterways, and

Country Pirate Co. wants to provide residents and visitors

with the means to paddle or float their way past the sights.

The canoe, kayak, and inflatable rental business is the result of a lifetime spent on the water by Christian Miles of Fishertown.

Old Bedford Village is where the past comes to life! Take a walk through history and be transported to rural Pennsylvania before it was transformed by industry and technology. You’ll relive simpler times as historical interpreters demonstrate the trades and crafts of villagers in preserved structures built during the 18th and 19th centuries. Don’t just read about the past- experience it through hands-on activities that connect the past to the present.


Gravity Hill

Located in the suburbs of New Paris, PA (South Central Pennsylvania)... Gravity Hill is a phenomenon. Cars roll uphill and water flows the wrong way. It's a place where gravity has gone haywire. There is no fee to venture onto Gravity Hill. It is, quite simply, a road in a remote corner of Bedford County.
