Chandler Road Water Trough

The Chandler Road Water Trough is one of the community gardens maintained by the Bedford Garden Club. The granite water trough is located at the corner of Chandler Road and Bedford Center Road.  The water trough was donated to the Bedford Garden Club by the Allen Family Estate in memory of Helen Smith, a former president of the Club. By the direction of the memorial, nothing is to be planted in the trough. The trough collects rain water for the local wildlife.  The Club recognizes the importance of this donation and maintains the area around the trough with plantings of hosta and daylilies.
