Wakefield Development Company began developing this master planned community in 2001 with similar, real estate ideals to Falls River, but with an even larger offering of housing choices and a big focus on socialization! Many people continued to relocate to the Raleigh, NC area from other parts of the country, and usually not having any friends or family connections. Relocating families, retirees or even young professionals found Bedford at Falls River the easy answer to meeting lots of new people, plus the ability to find a new home within the community that fits their profile!
