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.

The graveyard is extremely fascinating, and I could have spent a good part of my afternoon here. it was amazing to see the old headstones, the family names, and the history of the area. I came to specifically see Robert Frost's grave. As other reviewers have noted, it is much easier to reach his grave by parking near the church... More

Take note, this part of the cemetery is best accessed from the church, not the museum. The cemetery is a peaceful and historic place to visit. There is a brochure posted but it's difficult to read. The oldest headstone I noted was from the early 1700's. Many are inscripted with lengthy epitaphs. Sadly, many are illegible now due to the... More

It probably helps that Robert Frost is buried here as the entire cemetery is very well manicured. There are some very old headstones that make for interesting reading if you are into that sort of thing. We missed the church as it was closed. Check out the three covered bridges and Bennington Monument while you are in the area. A... More

The church rising above the cemetery is picture perfect, but in its shadow is this cemetery. I could have spent the entire day here reading the headstones. This is a place filled with history. The cemetery is apparently treasured by the town because it is in perfect, manicured condition. From the front white picket fence the oldest headstones can be... More
