Pownal

Old Bennington today is a graceful village of historic homes from the Revolutionary, Antebellum and Victorian years of our country. The entire village was designated a National Historic District in 1984. The dominant architectural style is Federal and homes built later, into the 20th century also favored this style.  

Directly across from the village green lies a remarkable cemetery of Revolutionary War heroes as well as other notable’s including Robert Frost and his immediate family. The Old First Church was restored in 1937 using the original plans of its master builder and architect, Lavius Fillmore. The first minister of this Congregational Church was Rev. Jedidiah Dewey and his home still remains in the village along with the homes of many other early settlers and leaders of this village. It was the first church in Vermont.

Chartered in 1749 and settled in 1761 we owe a debt of gratitude to Captain Samuel Robinson who discovered Bennington when he mistook the Hoosac River for the Hudson River upon returning with his soldiers from exploration of “The Wilderness” known today as Vermont. Governor Benning Wentworth of New Hampshire had been charged by King George to settle this territory and Bennington was the first grant given and named after the governor in 1749.

Endowed with natural beauty, located on a wide plateau west of the town of Bennington, Old Bennington has become a remarkable place to own a home.

When the post office officially made the move in 1848 to the valley, Bennington on The Hill or Bennington Centre became Old Bennington and Bennington was reorganized.   Old Bennington, over time, took advantage of becoming a residential village as businesses followed the commerce down the hill. It is quite unique that now, Old Bennington is limited to residential zoning with some home occupations.  One outstanding example of bygone days is reflected in the Walloomsac Inn which had originally been the home of Jedidiah Dewey’s son Elijah and still stands, though closed to the public. A few other grandfathered businesses remained but are no longer there. The grandest feature of all is The Bennington Battle Monument, commemorating The Battle of Bennington, a significant turning point in The Revolutionary War.   

There are 97 residences mostly on 2+ acres of land with sidewalks shaded by tall trees.  We highly encourage you to get a feel for the village and its history by walking from the Old First Church and cemetery up Monument Avenue, stopping to read the commemorative plaques recognizing our heroes in the Revolutionary War and ending at the Bennington Battle Monument.

If you cherish history and elegant historic and vintage homes you must put this village on your list of possibilities.

Have you ever just wanted to get away from it all? Not more than 10 minutes from Williamstown and 20 minutes from Bennington you will find an oasis of peace where you can hear nothing but birdsong, a lively stream and the sound of the wind in the trees. On this 162+ acre property, built at the highest elevation allowed by zoning, you'll find a chalet style home with beautiful pine floors, exposed beams and open floor plan with access to a deck overlooking mountain views. Second floor has 2 bedrooms, one with a balcony. Walkout lower level includes kitchen/living and bedroom with 3/4 bath. In addition to the house there is a detached 2-car garage and playhouse. But it's really about the land which includes $100,000 worth of harvestable timber and a natural groundwater spring that provides a significant amount of cold, clear water. Over 200 years ago, a sheep farm made its home on these slopes and today the property provides the opportunity for life completely off the grid if so desired. A special property, the likes of which does not often come along.

One distinctive aspect of life in the northeastern U.S. is the region's history. The earliest European settlers that came to America did so in what they aptly named “New England”; apart from a few native American Pueblos of the west, New England boasts the site of the nation's oldest, continuously occupied and most historic homes. This home, built in two stages, 1750 & 1850, has been lovingly preserved and updated over generations and provides the next fortunate owners 2,100 SF of home sweet home. Don't expect the latest here but expect authenticity and a friendly warm feeling that wraps around and holds you. There's plenty of room inside and outside as well thanks to over an acre of land for play, gardening, hobbies, or just plain relaxing. The active railroad tracks at the rear of the property carry several trains a day, great for enthusiasts. Information from the Historic Site Marker placed on the property: EARLY EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY SETTLEMENT This site commemorates the gateway of Vermont's earliest Dutch settlement, the Rensselaerwyck Manor settlement. The Diel Homestead, built by Bastion Diel in the early 1700's is considered the second earliest dwelling in Pownal. The property's large Dutch barn still stands across this historic roadway, today's Route 346, which passes through Massachusetts, Vermont, and New York. Bastion's grandson, Mikel Diel, also lived here, was a Green Mountain Boy under Colonel Seth Warner, and fought at the Battle of Bennington August 16, 1777.
