On Monday, workers from James Jones & Associates demolished the historic house at 719 Longwood Ave. in Bedford that was damaged beyond repair in a mid-December fire. The house was built in 1891 and was home to Josephine Bibb, a well-known Bedford teacher from her birth until her death in 2003. Jamie Snell is the most recent owner of the historic home. The fire began in the area of the home’s wood stove. The homeowners were not at home when the fire began.
