On a recent day trip, we visited the Bennington Battle Monument.
(They had haunted tours of it this past Halloween, but we refrained from taking one of those. ha!)
We just enjoyed walking around the grounds and partaking of the breathtaking fall foliage.
One could see all the way to the sun-kissed tops of surrounding hills. Stupendous!
There's a great monument to John Stark there, too. As indicated in the plaque in front of him, he was instrumental in winning the 1777 Battle at Bennington.
By the way, the battle did not take place where the monument stands.
More than 300 feet tall, the Battle Monument was dedicated in 1891.
It's a great, historical place to visit.
