It's a very impressive monument and lovely site. It was very touching to read the inscriptions and information on the battle.

If you are a history buff -- or in you are simply in the area of Bennington -- be sure to visit the monument. The view from the top is great. There's an elevator and a small admission charge. Pair this with a drive through the covered bridges and lunch at Pete's Diner and you've go a great way to... More

I saw this when I was driving into town and thought it looked like a medieval sword thrusting up out of the ground. The drive up to it along Monument Avenue is spectacular, with beautiful mansions and the Old First Church and graveyard. Well worth the drive, then you get to the monument and you can climb up inside it.... More

We enjoyed our visit to this great little town and took in as much history as it had to offer. The view from the top of the monument is great.

From atop it looks like you can see your house....no matter where you live. Easy to get to and very well done it has a comfort feel to it. The obligatory gift shop got us for a couple things we couldn't live without but they were unique to the locale and region. Residing well away from the Revolutionary War history... More

We were staying in nearby Manchester for a weekend getaway and decided to see some of the attractions in the area. The Bennington Battle Monument is very nice and the views are great from the top. We highly recommend visiting the monument and taking the ride up.
