Announcements and Events

The Trimble County Historical Society had a wonderful time at the 11th Annual Bedford Bash Car Show hosted by the Bedford Bank located at 45 Highway 42 East in Bedford on August 25,2017. The Bedford Bank opened its doors in 1891 and continues to serve our community. Thank you to each person who stopped by to say hello and donate to our "Save the Jail" fund. We reconnected with so many and hope to see you at future meetings. Projects are moving forward so come join us! 


All proceeds from our fundraisers benefit the “Save the Jail” project and provide the necessary funds to upgrade the electric and bring the jail’s interior back to its original look but in accordance with current building codes.

In Other News...


The popular website is getting a facelift!  Stay tuned for upcoming changes and a chance to take a peek at their new look! The Cemetery Club, a part of the Trimble County Historical Society, is busy placing all interments online at Find A Grave.  Several volunteers are involved. Please let us know if you would like to help digitize these records. 

Investigation is underway at Chalfant Cemetery. Another group is busy working at Moffett Cemetery.


If you dig history, the way these folks do, you are welcome to join them in locating, preserving, and honoring those gone before in Trimble County. If you have a family cemetery located on your property in need of identification or cleanup, please let us know. The Cemetery Club is happy to help. After cleanup and identification, the Cemetery Club will record the interments and place them online. 



Do You Dig History Too?

Join the Cemetery Club or just become part of our historical society.
