“Manicured final resting Place”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

It probably helps that Robert Frost is buried here as the entire cemetery is very well manicured. There are some very old headstones that make for interesting reading if you are into that sort of thing. We missed the church as it was closed. Check out the three covered bridges and Bennington Monument while you are in the area. A very nice way to spend the day.

“Blessed, Hallowed Ground.”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

The church rising above the cemetery is picture perfect, but in its shadow is this cemetery.

I could have spent the entire day here reading the headstones. This is a place filled with history. The cemetery is apparently treasured by the town because it is in perfect, manicured condition. From the front white picket fence the oldest headstones can be seen. It is a beautiful place to take pictures.

There are signs along the path pointing the way to Robert Frost's grave in the back of the graveyard.

This is a peaceful way to see some history in a quiet setting. It is well worth the stop.

“Perfect New England Cemetery”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

grave of Robert Frost. Behind Bennington Museum which is a nice small museum with a collection of Grandma Moses. Cemetery sits next to quintessential New England church in Old Bennington which is a great place to drive around for the lovely old home and of course the Bennington Battle Monument
