Bennington Historical Society

The mission of the Bennington Historical Society (BHS) is to recover and preserve information about the history of the Bennington region and share this information with the community through its projects, publications, programs, and other activities. The Society is a volunteer-operated program of the Bennington Museum and serves to support the Museum’s mission.

The BHS organizes and presents program in the Bennington Museum’s Ada Paresky Education Center, usually on the third Sunday of each month. Check the museum calendar for upcoming events. BHS programs are free and open to the public.

BHS volunteers conduct research on local history and post interesting finds on an independently maintained website. Video recordings of past BHS presentations are also available on that website. Check it out at
