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.

Glorious Vermont! Leave the frantic pace of the cities behind, leave behind the hectic pace of life, turn up the narrow town road that follows a fast flowing brook, cross over the brook and up another small side road serving just a few homes and arriving at the end is a panoramic view that unfolds before your eyes. You will delight at the expanse of open fields spreading out before you. Take the gravel road past the old farmhouse and barn right to the high point of the land and then stop, take a deep breath and soak in the absolutely stunning views to south, west and north, to mountains, valleys, forests and fields. The western views will delight with sunsets all year long or the arriving dramatic storms that occasionally roll through. Here you could build your dream home whether at the high point or lower on the land. It will be hard to decide. The land is almost all open former farm fields which would welcome horses, sheep, goats, Alpaca, gardens, small scale farming or just family, friends, pets and your own passions. The old farmhouse is a tear down, the barn a useful building. If you've been seeking a significant acreage in VT but not far from culture, colleges, theater, music, art, restaurants, then this is perfect being just 15 minutes from Williamstown, MA and Bennington, VT. Just 3 hours to NYC or Boston and an hour to superb VT ski areas. Hiking is everywhere, lakes not far, but once here, you may never want to leave. This is an extraordinary opportunity

Amazing and fabulous western views take in mountains and sunsets all year long. The sloping farmland is open and would not only be an ideal setting for your dream home but also for farming on a modest scale, horses, alpaca, sheep or other livestock and just plain living in Vermont. Nearby is Bennington, VT to the north or Williamstown, MA and Williams College and MASS MOCA to the south, both just 15-20 minutes by car. We haven't seen such a spectacular piece of land coming on the market in a long time and this is at the end of a town maintained road with power in place. This is not a drive by and all visits must be accompanied by the broker.
