Stopped by on our way out of Bennington. We needed fuel so we decided to fill up as well. This is a full service station and it didn't cost us any more to fill up. We walked inside to check out some car items they had on display and thought that was the only thing to see. One of the... More

Enjoyed our visit here as there is a nice collection of old cars. They also have a working service station that you can get gas from. Got some cool things for the grandson and a few for us in the gift shop. All and all glad we made the stop here.

We stopped at this service station to get gas and found out it was full service! The attendant told us about the town and informed me of a museum in the rear. So we walked over and was greeted by the gentleman that explained the museum and told us that Hemmings Motor News is printed there. What a collection. Inside... More

Didn't realize that this was in this town. It is a full service gas station with a automotive book store within it. There is a building that you can look in and see the restoration process. A great find on this trip.

We came to Bennington solely for the cruise-in held on a Thursday night at Hemmings in early June. It did not disappoint. Run by professional car people for decades. The gas station is a real treat with many items for sale inside. The museum is very interesting and reminded us a bit of Antique Archeology in Iowa (American Pickers). The... More
