The Bennington Battle Monument is 306 feet 4 and 1/2 inches tall and was completed and dedicated in 1891. It is constructed from blue-grey magnesian limestone. The Monument was built to commemorate the Battle of Bennington which occured on August 16, 1777, and is considered to be the turning point in the Revolutionary War. It is owned by the State of Vermont, and is supported by The Friends of the Monument, a non-profit volunteer group. A number of events are scheduled at the Monument each year, and the public is welcome.

This tower monument really brings home the pride that this community has in its history. This tower was erected to commemorate the Battle of Bennington. It stands 306 feet tall. Freedom it's observation tower you can see NY, MA, and VT.

This historic obelisk commemorates the Revolutionary War Battle of Bennington (to learn about the Battle visit the nearby Bennington Museum). A small adjacent gift shop sells tickets that allow one to ascend via the elevator. In addition to fabulous multi-state views the stones of which the monument is built represent the whole state of Vermont. This is a great low-key attraction, I just wish it were open during more of the year!

This monument has a very small museum on the base floor that wont take more than a few minutes to check out. Then ride the elevator to the viewing platform which is about 2/3rds of the way up the monument. Great views, very friendly staff. Not interesting enough to visit twice.

Beautiful piece of history that is now lit up due to Philip Pappas' hard work and dedication to his home town! Amazing!
