Long considered the county town of Missisquoi, Bedford is located close to the Quebec-Vermont border.

At the end of the 19th century, Bedford was a significant trade centre with the train station, retail stores, agricultural society buldings, Bedford Times newspaper head office, branch of the Exchange Bank, office of the Dominion Telegraph Company, tannery, several manufacturing shops, and smelting works.
