Soldier Monument in Bedford City Cemetery
This monument was dedicated in 1914 by "Comrades and Friends." It is unusual to have two such monuments in the same town - Bedford also has a large soldier monument at the courthouse. Thanks to Helen Janson for information about this monument. The City Cemetery is in the SW part of town on Cook Street. It should not be confused with the Fairview Cemetery in the same area - the City Cemetery is west of Fairview. Photos taken 5/16/09 and 19/14/17.
