To experience Bennington, either as a resident or a passerby can only be described as enchanting. Hard to put into words, but understood by those who live here, many have chosen to relocate to this community, nestled in the Green Mountains, for its beautiful landscape, vast outdoor recreation network and proximity to urban environment while still being able to experience the countryside.
It is not uncommon in Bennington to be walking down the street and receive a ‘hello’ from others as you pass by and with a school that prides itself on finding innovative solutions to the most troubling educational problem, it’s no wonder that this community of approximately 15,000 is selected by many as the perfect place to raise a family.
Not there yet? Not to worry. Bennington’s vibrant and close-knit community provides ample opportunities to get to know your neighbors. With most eateries being locally owned and operated, and stores occupied by community members, chances are you’ll end up somewhere ‘where everyone knows your name.’
With the environment at the forefront of the national discussion, Bennington is leading the charge in supporting and developing projects that create a sustainable future for our residents. Specifically, the Town of Bennington recently entered into an agreement with a solar company to allow them to use a former landfill site to house their new solar farm. This provides revenue to the town and supports renewable energy creation.
