Counter Ridge / Sedalia Primary School Reunion

Before it was the Sedalia center, the counter ridge school and later the Sedalia primary school sheltered and educated many Bedford County residents. Alumni, family, friends, and neighbors are invited to come out, get together, and celebrate this Bedford county institution that has always been a gathering place and center for the area.

The Sedalia center has collected some historical background on Counter Ridge. We invite anyone with artifacts, memorabilia, information, and memories to bring them to the center so they can help reconstruct and reinvigorate the school’s history.

Please contact Doris Mccabe through the office email office@sedealicenter.org or call the office and leave your contact information.
