Bennington Postcard
Nestled in the southwest corner of Vermont, Bennington is rich in history
and natural beauty. On August 16, 1777, the Green Mountain Boys and militia
from surrounding states defeated British troops at the Battle of Bennington.
Like other small towns in New England, this agricultural community soon
found its waterways dominated by large factories. When manufacturing
declined in the early 1900s, the town reinvented itself as a tourist
destination. Postcards promoting local scenery, quaint covered bridges,
bustling downtown streets, modern amenities, and significant historic sites
explained the town's importance to travelers and fostered local pride.
