The Booming Bedford, TX
Arriving in the late 1840s, the first settlers of the Bedford area made their home between Grapevine and Fort Worth. In the 1870s Bedford was officially settled after Weldon Bobo established a gristmill and general store to serve the farmers of the area. Bobo and the farmers decided to name the settlement, Bedford, after a Tennessee county where many of them had moved from. Fellow settler, Milton Moore, established the first school in his log cabin in 1861 to accommodate a little over a dozen students and Bedford College would later be founded in 1882 for continuing education. In 1874, Bobo and many of the farmers founded the first church in the area. The first Bedford post office was established in Bobo’s home in 1877.
Second behind Fort Worth in population, Bedford had between one and two thousand residents along with twenty-eight businesses in the early 1890s. The booming population thrived as traffic came through Bedford Road; however, the 1901 DFW Interurban Rail and US Highway 80 soon diverted traffic away from Bedford. At this time, residents and businesses moved and the only post office closed in 1909. Later, the construction of military bases and defense plants caused Bedford’s population to grow to over four hundred. Bedford continued to grow and had over ten thousand residents by 1970. Today, Bedford spans ten square miles and has over fifty thousand residents.
