“Impressive site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Beautiful view. Small cost to enter and go up the monument but you can still walk around the grounds and read the etchings on the statues.

“Historic monument with amazing views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

My wife and I visited the monument when on our trip to Vermont and the Adirondacks. The grounds are easy to find, and there is a gift shop and restroom near the base of the monument. . The guides that operated the elevator were very friendly, knowledgeable, talkative and humorous, making the attraction even more enjoyable. The views at the top were amazing on the clear day we visited. We were the only two at the top, which was quiet, and were allowed to open the windows to take photos. This is definitely worth the small fee of $3.

“Great views, nice history and pet friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

The elevator operator provides a nice historical narrative about the monument and you can see 3 states from the 20th story where the elevator stops. Great views! They even let us take our dog up with us!

“taken to new heights.”

Very much enjoyed the monument. Had nice guides, view a bit hazy due to high temps, price was ok. Think it is worth the visit.

“Striking mounment sits high about Bennington”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

This monument is the most noticeable attraction in the area since it sits high on a hill. The obleisk is over 300 feet and you can go to the top for great views of the area by means of an elevator for $3. The monument and surrounding statues commemorate the Battle of Bennington in 1777. This is a lovely, peaceful area with benches, a gift shop, rest rooms and easy free parking.
