Bedford County is a county located in the U.S. state of the Commonwealth of Virginia. As of 2010, the population was estimated to be 68,676. Its county seat is the city Bedford and is part of the Lynchburg Metropolitan Statistical Area. As an independent city, Bedford is not a part of Bedford County, despite being the county seat. On September 14, 2011, the Bedford City Council voted to transition into a town, ending its independent city status. The supervisors of Bedford County also voted to accept the town of Bedford as part of the county when it loses city status. The transition is expected to begin in July 2013.
