We were passing through the area and made it a point to stop to see the monument. As other reviewers have stated, $5 gets you an elevator ride to the top of the monument where you can take in the view in all directions. There are a couple of small displays inside the monument and staff member was very willing... More

Ranger that took us to top explained about the history of The GREEN MOUNTAIN BOY"S & why this area is so important to the events of the Revoluationary War. Beautiful view from the top. Note General Burgoyne's cooking kettle that hangs in the monument & the Ranger will tell you a bit more as to how it got there.

For a mere $5 you get a brief history of the Revolutionary War, a pleasant elevator operator and views you just can't believe until you see them from the top of the monument where you are welcome to stay for as long as you feel. My parents took me here as a little girl, and I took my children, and... More

Nice monument with very nice gift shop. You have to pay to go up it and we just took pictures from the outside. The visitors center for the area and vermont was a few miles away so since I could see it from there we decided to check it out a little before passing through the area. We found out... More

Similar to the National and Bunker Hill monuments, this sits nestled in what is now a suburban neighborhood, but visible for miles in most directions. It sits majestically, and peacefully on a manicured lawn.

We stopped here with our 8 and 9 year old kids on our way from Berkshire County to the Mad River area of Vermont. Totally worth the hour or so we spent there! We got to enjoy the fantastic picturesque views from the monument observation level and enjoyed the short walks to the statues of the commanders of the Colonial... More

Check the times of operation. It is definitely worth the admission price to ride the elevator to the top.
