While Bedford, Texas is considered a part of the “Mid-Cities” region between Dallas and Fort Worth, it’s technically a suburb of Fort Worth. The first settlers to arrive in the Bedford area settled in the 1840s. The first school was established in 1861 by Milton Moore of North Carolina, working right out of his own log cabin with a class size of about twelve students. In the 1870s, Weldon Bobo relocated to the area from Tennessee, setting up a general store and gristmill. Bobo and the farmers collectively decided upon the name Bedford, after the county in Tennessee where many of them came from.
By the 1880s and 1890s, the town of Bedford was thriving, with an estimated population between 1,000 – 2,000 residents. At this time, roughly 28 businesses had set up shot in Bedford, not including Bedford College, which was founded in 1882. The period of prosperity enjoyed by Bedford and its residents ended shortly after the turn of the century when the Dallas-Fort Worth Interurban rail line was built, with U.S. Highway 890 closely paralleling it. The addition of both a major thoroughfare and rail line effective crippled poor Bedford, diverting travelers away from Bedford Road. Commerce in the city eventually dried up and businesses and residents moved out of town.
