Bennington Postcard History
Bennington Historical Society and Bennington Museum

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 towns importance to travelers and
fostered local pride.
