My husband and I were driving around Bennington, when he noticed this monument peeking up through the trees. Much like the Washington Monument as you approach it it gets taller and taller... And the best part? There is an elevator inside! The elevator is definitely small but it's about a 65 second ride (and no it does not go to... More

We went to the Bennington Battle Monument for a homeschool field trip while visiting family in the area. After parking, we saw an incredible mountain view & took some pictures! Then you go into the gift shop to buy tickets to take the elevator ride up the monument (I think it was like $3 a person). The gentleman inside was... More

This is a must see for the first time traveler as you can see the whole of the valley from the top, and learn a lot abou the battle fought here during the Revolutionary War, very interesting.

This was a great find...we went on a Saturday and too the elevator up to the top. The views are beautiful. Had to go back on Sunday because they were opening the stairs and allowing people to climb. They only started doing this recently and there are only a few days when you can use the stairs and see the... More

Beautiful location and the monuments are something to behold. In front of the monument is a statue of John Stark. Amazing what could be built back in the day.

My wife and I visited the Bennington Battle Monument during our visit to Bennington, VT. The Monument commemorates the battle during the American Revolution. It is an obelisk located at the center of a traffic circle in a residential section of the city. There was a minimum of information available, just a few plaques that described the event and the...

We saw the tower from a distance and was driving past not willing to climb 100 or more steps, and saw the sign about the construction of an interior elevator. Turned the car around and took in a great view from the highest point in Vermont.

It was an interesting monument but very hard to get a good picture of because it is so tall. It is in a residential area but was very easy to find. There is a statue in front of the monument and a statue behind it as well, so don't miss the one behind it.

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!
