Sure, we could show you the view of Bennington Monument, which commemorates a Revolutionary War in 1777. But would that give you an idea about the rural countryside? Nope. So the introduction to this quaint town in the southwest corner of the state comes from a photo on top of the monument.
Much better, right? On a clear day you can see four states from Vermont's tallest structure.
Bennington has a museum, filled with works by such artists as Grandma Moses, and displays of glass and pottery.
It's also the final resting place for poet Robert Frost. The cemetery is located behind a church on top of a hill near the monument. It's a pretty setting.
Some friends just love Bennington, and it's easy to see why.
