Owner description: The Park-McCullough House is the crown jewel of North Bennington, Vermont. Representing 150 years of Vermont history Park-McCullough also serves as a contemporary prism through which citizens of North Bennington and surrounding towns gather to share myriad perspectives and pleasures. The grounds are open daily, and tours are available on weekends. Additionally public programming, theatre and a music series are provided seasonally. Arguably the finest intact Victorian mansion in New England, the house was built in 1864-65 by attorney and entrepreneur Trenor W. Park (1823-1882) who amassed his fortune overseeing the California mining interests of John C. Fremont. Four generations of the family have lived on the property, including two governors, Hiland Hall and John G. McCullough. The thirty-five room mansion stands an important example of American Second Empire Style set on 200 acres in Southern Vermont. The mansion is the perfect venue for unique and memorable weddings and celebrations. Guests may tour the mansion, stroll the grounds, play games on the expansive lawns or relax on the wrap-around veranda during cocktail hour. The Carriage Barn is the perfect venue for live music, receptions and dance.

Last Sunday we stopped here. The parking lot had several cars in it. A woman came out of the mansion and told us it was closed because we didn't have a reservation. The AAA book read that it was open to the public and even gave the hours which we were within. We said we were from another state. She said she was sorry, and then went inside with another couple. On the outside the mansion had flaking paint entirely.

Unfortunately, the house is closed for 2012 except for special events, but the grounds are still beautiful and the adjacent Mile-Around-Woods walk offers a scenic stroll though farmland and woods. I've toured the house in the past and its interesting to see how the Park and McCullogh families lived a century ago. Beautiful carriage house too.

Our family attended a wedding here and what a great old Victorian House. The grounds were well manicured and had great spots for pictures. I believe they call it the Carriage barn were the reception was held. The company that catered the event said that you can tour the old house. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to but hope to the next time we are up that way.
