Note to the reader:
These posts are intended to be working documents. I hope you will add to them.
There are 3 parts:
1) The 1856 map of North Bennington,
2) The map of the red, green and blue walking tours,
3) Descriptions of the village and the houses which existed in 1856,
You are encouraged to comment.
If you prefer, pages for your notes are available at the John G. McCullough Free Library, North Bennington. Each building has its page with lots of blank space for you to add your information.
The walking tour emphasizes the architecture and technology of North Bennington in 1856. Of course, that’s only one way to understand our past.
North Bennington's historic record and this walk will be much richer when we know more about who lived here and what they did.
Please add your information, your perspective. Please give dates whenever possible.
Thank you for your help.
