It was a lovely way of viewing the area and looking at the autumn colour. As it was the most eye catching monument in the area it was easy to spot and find

I'm a history buff, and coming to this Battle Monument filled me with overwhelming emotion. Standing on the soil where brave men risked their lives to fight tyranny is enough reward in itself. Don't miss the going up in the tower for the amazing views. If you can, go in the Fall to heighten the experience.

We visited this monument the second week of October. An elevator takes you to the top as the stairs are out of service. A very friendly gentleman runs the elevator who is happy to share his knowledge and history of the tower. Tickets for entrance can be purchased across the parking lot in the gift store/museum. The views from the... More

The monument, which looks like a gray Washington Monument, is sited on top of the hill where the US rebels (Patriots now) kept their supplies and arms. The actual revolutionary war battle of Bennington occurred down to the west of the monument in New York State. It was a rebel victory, and the British never got to the supplies. Statues... More

We visited this monument in October. I think our views of the fall trees and colors were the best from the top of the monument. The employees in the gift shop and the guide on the elevator were exceptional.

We had a great experience here! The man who ran the elevator was well-informed and genuinely interested in Bennington's history. We were on the last ride up with him before he locked up. He gave us plenty of time to enjoy the amazing views from the top of the monument. I definitely recommend this place. The people are very friendly,... More

We reached almost at the end of the day, they close by 5 pm. Its perhaps a nice ride up the elevator but we decided against it and just walked around in the small roundabout around the monument. Its definitely worth a visit and its surrounded by victorian homes and historic lanes, the town itself has a lot of art... More

The monument's setting is lovely and the view from the top is even better. Well worth the small fee to the ride - take your camera!

I wasn't familiar with the Battle of Bennington before coming here and was interested to learn of its significance in affecting the outcome of the subsequent Battle of Saratoga. The views from the top of the monument are exquisite in the fall. The little gift shop is a good place to pick up gifts for your family and cat-sitter back... More
