Bennington Historical Society

Discover the history of Bennington by visiting their historical society and museum. The Township of Bennington Historical Society was created in the 1970's as part of the American Bicentennial celebration.  In those early years, members renovated the former Cowlesville Library building at 211 Clinton Street, into the new Town Historical Museum and began collecting local artifacts for the museum's display.

In the years that followed, several hundred donations and purchases have been made to fill the museum with a look at Bennington's history through the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.  

Hours of operation are:

  • Third Sunday of the month, April through November from 1pm - 3pm.
  • Tours can be arranged by appointment.
  • The museum is also open from 10AM - 4pm during the Cowlesville Flea Market (the second Sunday in July each year).
