An industry that once thrived in Bedford County is being remembered by the people who broke it up.
Three retired agents from the Alcohol Beverage Control shared stories Saturday about Bedford's moonshining past.
It was part of a panel discussion, hosted by the Bedford Museum and Genealogical Library.
Along with humerous tales about raids, there were also displays showing what moonshine stills used to look like.
"It is an important part of our past and some people may not think that it's a glorious part, but it's part of it and we need to preserve all aspects of our history," said Jennifer Thomson, genealogical librarian.
The Bedford Museum is wrapping up an exhibit on moonshining in the county. Most of the memorabilia will soon travel to a museum in Nelson County, where it will join an even larger display about bootlegging.
