Seen one, seen 'em....

All told, this is as good a battle monument as one might hope for. Lovely view too. But it's a battle monument! ... Come on!

Always fun to go up in the elevator to see the surrounding area. It is particularly nice when the fall colors are full. Sometimes the stairs are open.

Impressive monument in a lovely circular park. We missed riding the elevator to the top as they close it late October, but I bet the view is amazing. Late fall colors were lovely....

OK maybe $5 is a bit steep (no pun intended !) to get to the top of this monument but it us worthwhile when you get up there and see the gorgeous view. It was a bit hazy that day we were up and had it just recently stopped raining but the sun peeped out a few times - I... More

It's hard not to miss this monument as you're driving through town. We happened to stop just as a tour group was getting back to their bus. We did't go up, but we did buy a few souvenirs from the shop. The workers in the shop were very nice and helpful.

Pretty cool tower overlooking both New York and New Hamphshire. You take the elevator which costs $5 to the observation deck. Be careful it's pretty windy up there because there are no windows. Nice gift shop.

An impressive monument that stands tall over the local landscape. Easily seen from a long distance away. Recommended by the locals who declared that at the top you could see three states; unfortunately it was closed the day we visited. Picture shows my wife at the base to give you a sense of the actual size.

Beautiful vantage point to see the lovely fall foliage. I'm particularly drawn to looking south over the church down the street. We stop here every time we're in the area and it never gets old.

Decided to check out this monument while we were visiting Bennington. It was worth the trip. The view from the top of the monument is awesome. It is also wonderful that you take an elevator to the top. No climbing stairs which was great. Our guide Mike took us to the top and then left us to take as much... More
