Our motorcycle club visited the Bennington Battle Monument during the August 2014 Bennington Battle Day celebrations, which featured the firing of cannons and an American Revolutionary War re-enactment encampment right there at the monument on the grounds. What a treat! This is a piece of history well worth seeing. You can purchase a ticket to go to the top, but... More

We drove over to the Monument. It was impressive. We choose not to pay to go to the top, due to fog. We recommend seeing, if in Bennington!

On my first visit through Bennington, I learned about the Monument at the visitor's center but missed the part that you could go up in it. It closed for I got there too late. When we passed through again for Ramuntos I just had to stop to go to the top. It is a neat historical monument - both in... More

When you're coming into Bennington, there's no way to miss this monument up on the hill. Visited in the evening so I wasn't able to go up the elevator. Still, really nice to see and then take a drive past the old church & cemetery where Robert Frost is buried.

The elevator only takes visitors part of the way up but it is high enough to get good views. The windows are narrow but at least they are open. It is worth a quick stop.

Interesting revolutionary war history and the views of three states were spectacular. We did think the $5 fee was a bit high for an elevator ride to the viewing area.

This monument was a nice way to spend a little time on a nice day. The grounds are very pretty, the staff was very pleasant, helpful, and knowledgeable. Great photo opportunity from the observation deck.

I have to admit: I was not familiar with the Revolutionary War's Battle of Bennington. But, evidently it was a pivotal battle where solders from Vermont, assisted by those from New Hampshire and elsewhere, fought the British and their German mercenary allies. The monument itself is an imposing structure, built in the 1880's and '90s, and opened on the 100th... More
