Owner description: The Park-McCullough House is the crown jewel of North Bennington, Vermont. Representing 150 years of Vermont history Park-McCullough also serves as a contemporary prism through which citizens of North Bennington and surrounding towns gather to share myriad perspectives and pleasures. The grounds are open daily, and tours are available on weekends. Additionally public programming, theatre and a music series are provided seasonally. Arguably the finest intact Victorian mansion in New England, the house was built in 1864-65 by attorney and entrepreneur Trenor W. Park (1823-1882) who amassed his fortune overseeing the California mining interests of John C. Fremont. Four generations of the family have lived on the property, including two governors, Hiland Hall and John G. McCullough. The thirty-five room mansion stands an important example of American Second Empire Style set on 200 acres in Southern Vermont. The mansion is the perfect venue for unique and memorable weddings and celebrations. Guests may tour the mansion, stroll the grounds, play games on the expansive lawns or relax on the wrap-around veranda during cocktail hour. The Carriage Barn is the perfect venue for live music, receptions and dance.

This is truly one of Southern VT's little treasures, the house still hold the old settings, the grounds are beautiful and the carriage house is amazing, defiantly worth stopping at.

You have to be in town on Friday to take a tour, but even on other days it is a beautiful estate worth stopping in to see the grounds. There is also a walking trail just beyond the estate.

We had the pleasure to watch the Mettawee Players one evening in July here at Park-McCollough house. The grounds and house were an excellent backdrop for the cagey folk puppet group. Great night on the lawn. Many families and a few people picnicking with dinner and a bottle of wine. Lovely lovely evening. can't wait till next summer to do it again.

During one night in Bennington, drove by but unfortunately the house was closed for the evening. To bad, the house looked very interesting and I would have loved to have gone inside.
