“The first Protestant church in Vermont”

The Old First Church was gathered in 1762, the first Protestant church in Vermont. Much of the early history of Bennington and of Vermont took place in and around the original Meeting House, built in 1763, and the present church, built in 1805 and dedicated January 1, 1806. After a significant restoration of the meetinghouse in 1935, the Vermont Legislature honored this history by designating the church “Vermont’s Colonial Shrine”.

We still remark about the balcony seating in the church. One side for the girls and the other for the boys. You could tell the side where the boys were by the carvings in the woodwork. The downstairs had family box seats where you always sat. The cemetery had a section dedicated to soldiers from the Revolutionary War. And a short walk away was the grave of Robert Frost.
