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.

“A step back in time”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

A beautiful gem. The architecture is absolutely stunning. The charm of the estate is so apparent. It is well appointed with time period pieces of furniture and other amenities. It really takes you back to the 1860's.

So disappointed I did not get to tour this house. It is closed and there is no indication of when it will reopen.

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.

“Beautiful Estate”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

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.
