Lovely, well-maintained cemetery. People should spend more time visiting cemeteries and try to connect with the past. Be sure to visit Robert Frost's grave. Good place to stop after seeing the battle monument and the museum.

We walked around the cemetery. It was a peaceful walk. Robert Frost is buried here. Also there is a monument where Ethan Allen's home use to stand.

This place is neat to walk around and so full of history. Robert Frost is buried here and there are so many graves from the patriots at the Battle of Bennington. There are even graves of some of the Hessians who attacked during the Revolution. This should definitely be on your historical tour!

This historic cemetery is located on the grounds of the Old First Congregational Church. It is also known as the Old Bennington Cemetery. Whatever the name; it was one of the most beautifully maintained colonial-era cemeteries I have visited. Many epitaphs inscribed on the tombstones were surprisingly still readable.

I visited the cemetery to check out the grave of Robert Frost. Many graves are from the 18th and 19th centuries. A number of graves have special markers which indicate that the deceased were Revolutionary soldiers. The cemetery is a beautiful spot: there are colorful mountains in the background which makes it picturesque.

This cemetery is very old and has interesting grave stones and inscriptions. It is always fascinating to read epitaphs and imagine how those people lived. Maybe a bit morbid, but hey it's history...

If only these headstones could talk. This is a beautiful cemetary with century old graves. Very peaceful walking between the headstones and enjoy in the breeze.
