The Bennington Battle Monument

While driving through Bennington, Vermont, we suddenly saw a huge stone obelisk on the horizon and went to investigate. We found that the Bennington Battle Monument was a memorial to to events of the American War of Independence, which was completed in the late 1890s at a reported cost of $120,000. For a cost of $2 you can take an elevator to over half way to the top of the 306′ structure. There are some excellent views of the Vermont countryside from that vantage point.

  2. I have driven by there, seen it from afar, but never paid much attention to it, but your post was an eye opener. Thanks! I’ll make a point of stopping. Nice shot, the first one. I don’t know how you managed to get it all into one frame.
