I would like to bring attention to a historic interpretive sign and stand that was stolen and vandalized at Depot Park along the bikeway near the rail car recently. The funding for this historic sign was donated to the Friends of Depot Park by the Frank W. Thompson Lodge. This interpretive sign was at the site of a historic water column that was used to replenish steam locomotive tenders. This sign was also adjacent to a switch stand used to manually move the points of track switches. The thief cut the sign from the custom stand we had made also destroying it.
We encourage anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity to contact the Bedford Police Department. We also ask all residents to help us by reporting any suspicious activity to the Bedford Police when you are at Depot Park.
