This is an absolute must-see when you're in Bennington. The short elevator ride to the top is all that it takes for the best view in Vermont. The history of this area is as vast as the view is. There's a nice gift shop where you'll buy your ticket and the grounds are beautiful.

We visited this area during the 1980's prior to visiting Saratoga Battlefield. The Bennington Museum, Monument, and Battlefield were very informative and impressive. It was interesting to learn that American New England Militia won a significant victory over British forces who were trying to obtain supplies. This weakened the British army which led to another American victory at Saratoga. The... More

Conveniently located from town. This historic site is interesting and beautifully maintained. The Visitors Center is an easy walk and quite charming.

Unfortunately it was closed the day we visited. It was a spur of the moment idea, the area is nice and we had a lovely walk. Try the Bennington Museum then go to the monument.

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
