Just 47 miles from New York City, the Town of Bedford  consists of three hamlets: Bedford Village, Katonah and Bedford Hills. The British legendarily burned Bedford to the ground in 1779, after the Battle of White Plains, and the area still has deep historic ties to its rich heritage. From its 200+ miles of riding trails to wildlife preserves to beautifully restored homes and buildings highlighting Bedford’s 333-year history, the town harkens back to a truly unique period of American history. Understanding the Town of Bedford The Town of Bedford has three distinct hamlets. Bedford, also known as Bedford Village, sits in the southeast part of the town and, in 1973, its historic district was added to the National Registry of Historic Places. Bedford Hills is an unincorporated hamlet in the western part of the town. The final piece of the Town of Bedford is Katonah, also an unincorporated hamlet, which sits at the north town line. Students in the Bedford and Bedford Hills sections attend school in the Bedford Central School District, while Katonah residents go to the schools of the Katonah-Lewisboro Union Free School District.
