Take a Moonlight Ride Up the Monument

For the second year in a row, Vermont’s tallest historic site will provide a rare opportunity to see Bennington lit up in the moonlight. On Saturday, September 3, the Friends of the Bennington Battle Monument invite the public to participate in “The Moonlight View from The Top”.

Viewers can take the elevator to the observation chamber from 6:00 pm until 10:30 pm to get a bird’s eye view of Bennington at night. Residents of Old Bennington and Bennington are asked to turn on their house lights to enhance the sparkle across the landscape below.

The Bennington Battle Monument is a Vermont state-owned historic site, located at 15 Monument Circle in Old Bennington, just north of Route 9. The monument and gift shop are open daily from 9 am until 5 pm between mid-April and Oct. 31. For more information, call 802-447-0550 or visit .
