A Piece of History

It may come as a surprise to know that the Bedner Shed at the Gilfillan Farm is a building that is not original to the property. In fact, the shed wasn't even built by the Gilfillans, nor did it serve any kind of purpose to them.

The Bedner Shed was originally built on the Bedner Farm property on Cook School Road. The Historical Society of Upper St. Clair needed additional storage space for tools and supplies that would be used for the large garden on the Gilfillan Farm. As a way to preserve another piece of Upper St. Clair history and to pay homage to the Bedner Farm, the Historical Society of Upper St. Clair acquired the Bedner Shed and relocated it to the Gilfillan property.
