Bennington is the oldest incorporated town in Vermont, and
the area is one of the most historic parts of the state. The
well-known story of Bennington's early days includes tales of
the Battle of Bennington and the adventures of Ethan Allen
and the Green Mountain Boys. Bennington carries the story of
this community forward into the twentieth century. It
pictures the town's development as a producer of textiles,
paper, and a wide array of goods, including the town's famous
pottery. At the same time, the area has remained a
picturesque region that attracts artists, poets, and summer
visitors. Bennington explores the scenic town with more than
two hundred vintage photographs from the Bennington Museum
and private collections, many of which have never before been
published. The area's growth and diversity are evident in
views of the changing architecture, transportation, and
recreational activities. Victorian estates of industrialists
offset the row houses of the mid-1800s mill workers. The
family horse is replaced by the trolley and then by the motor
car, such as the Martin Wasp. Bennington tells a story that
reveals the rich character of this historic Vermont town.
