This monument offers amazing views from the top and the bottom of the monument. The staff is kind and friendly. It is not far from the first Congregational church, so you should definitely try to do both.

We stopped here when we were in the area, even though I know we wouldn't be able to go to the top, since that is not an available option in the winter. But it was still worth the stop, as you can see a good distance on a clear day from the bottom and the grassy hill around the monument.... More

Caught sunrise and the full moon setting at the Battle Monument. Very scenic location. Nice way to check out the foilage, or at this time of year to see the golf course blanketed in snow.

We visited in the Fall to see the colors of the trees. You can ride up to the top of the memorial so no steps. The views are breathtaking. There are markers to point out the states you can see, an telescopes for viewing. The charge is not much an the views are so worth it. Touch a piece of... More

Pretty impressive monument, walked around it and did not seen any sign of access to stairs or an elevator. Would have been nice to have a sign with information about getting to the top.

This is a must see place. The observation floor is almost at the top but you get a great view of the area from all four directions.

This is a smaller version of the Washington Monument in DC. There is a very small grassy area around the monument, and you can take an elevator to the top during the summer months for a wonderful view of three states, possibly four. There is also a tacky gift shop and very little parking; downtown Bennington or the covered bridges... More

When we were there in October the elevator wasn't in service. My husband climbed the steps and he said the stairs were very user-friendly and it was easy to climb. I didn't go inside the monument. The gift shop is lovely and the people were very friendly.
