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.

Gorgeous monument! It can be seen from all around as you travel the highways nearby in Vermont. We did not get to go to the top this time, but it was still worth quite a few photos.

This is a stunning monument we first noticed while driving a considerable distance away. It's hard to miss at over 300' tall. We made sure to visit the site and the were blown away at it's reverence. The homes surrounding the site are all very colonial and period as well. Very humbling.

We saw this as we came into Vermont and my husband wanted to find it. It was well worth the search.

Very cool! Many of the home going to the monument have plaques saying who lived or was there during colonial times! My kids loved this
