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.

A contemporary farmhouse with 2 homes that could easily be converted into a single family. One side has 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, and the other side has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom with a separate office room on first floor, and an office area on second floor. Both sides have lots of storage and many possibilities. The contemporary design is not expected when you see the outside. Many farmhouse finishes offset with modern design choices inside blend together to make a comfortable home. Outside the decks, the lawn and gardens create an oasis away from town where you can garden, flowers, vegetables or herbs for your cooking. The huge barn can easily be used as craft studio or extra storage space. This home must be seen to be truly appreciated.
