The Lane Family Papers are the Bedford Historical Society’s largest and most important family collection. The BHS maintains more than 230 Lane Family documents, nearly all dated from the 1650s to the late 1790s. These papers are quite valuable as primary source documents on the history of the Lane Family, of Bedford, and of colonial life in New England.
