bennington battle monument

This 306′ dolomite obelisk was dedicated in 1891 to commemorate the 1777 Battle of Bennington. The monument was constructed on the site of the Continental arms storehouse, the object of this Revolutionary War battle in which General John Stark led his troops to one of the first major American victories against the British. There are interpretive exhibits, an elevator to the top of the monument, and a gift shop.
