The main draw of the Bennington Centre Cemetery is the grave of Robert Frost, but make sure you take time to really wander the grounds. You'll find a cenotaph to William Ellery Channing and countless graves marked as the final resting place of American Revolutionary soldiers. The history in this cemetery is as rich as any cemetery in the country... More

I wanted to go back to this cemetery to see it again. I also wanted to go so I could show it to my sister. It was as fantastic as I remembered it. I actually read a lot about it before going this time and that helped me appreciate it even more. It's a wonderful bit of history.

We stopped here to gaze upon the Frost resting place. We were not expecting such a gorgeous historical cemetery. My husband and I love cemeteries and this is one we would need an entire day to explore. Unfortunately,we only had about 40 minutes. There are signs to guide you to the Frost grave, which is nice. And there are so... More

About 10 yards down the hill from the garage on left side of road is Robert Frost Grave. Read his poetry before you come and then just look around. In October, this is one of Vermont's most beautiful spots.

The cemetery is a beautiful setting, enhanced by the changing colours of the leaves of the giant trees. We found the memorial to the British troops who died while prisoners after the Battle of Bennington, gravestones of those who had fought them, and the grave of Robert Frost, America's Poet Laureate,

It is a profound feeling to be surrounded by such history...many Revolutionary War soldiers are buried here. The cemetery has beautiful views of the landscape. The many varied stones and grave sites are fascinating.

It's a cemetery if it's not attached to a church. This one is next to and behind the Old First Church, therefore, technically, it's a graveyard and a lovely one at that. There's something very elegant about the tombstones all lined up and slowly wearing away. It's on Monument Avenue which has some of the most gorgeous houses and leads... More

I enjoyed this cemetery very much. It is well kept and easy to explore. The sound of birds chirping and the beautiful landscaping makes it an enjoyable place to visit.
