History Happened Here
The Titlows' house has quite a past. Nathaniel Page, a descendent of the original owners, served as the flag bearer for the Bedford Militia during the Battle of Concord in 1775—one of the first military engagements of the Revolutionary War. The battle flag, purported to be the oldest in the U.S., remained in the house for decades and was later donated to the town of Bedford. Because of the house's age and historical significance, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
