This 306 foot high obelisk monument made of blue dolomite was erected in 1887-1891 to commemorate the Battle of Bennington during the American Revolution. The monument was funded by the legislatures of Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts whose citizens fought at the battle that prevented desperate British troops from seizing needed supplies. This large monument is visible throughout Bennington and provides great views over the surrounding countryside. The monument is approximately 10 miles from the actual battle site which is in New York.
