Is there a town called Bedford Falls in the U.S.?

The movie It’s a Wonderful Life takes place in a town called Bedford Falls. Is there such a place? The Geographic Names Information System (GNIS)  contains information about physical and cultural geographic features of all types in the United States, associated areas, and Antarctica, current and historical, but not including roads and highways. The database holds the Federally recognized name of each feature and defines the feature location by state, county, USGS topographic map, and geographic coordinates. Other attributes include names or spellings other than the official name, feature designations, feature classification, historical and descriptive information, and for some categories the geometric boundaries.
