This site has been developed by The Fund for North Bennington, Inc., to document, explore and celebrate community life in and around North Bennington, Vermont.

The site contains galleries of historic photographs of North Bennington and the region. The heart of this collection is the work of Reuben Greene (1906-1996), an extraordinary amateur photographer. His images document local life from the late 1930s into the early 1960s. The two photos at top left are from the Greene collection.

There are also galleries of contemporary photographs of North Bennington, including a number of works by Kevin Bubriski, a local resident known internationally for his images made in the Near East and Nepal.

The Fund for North Bennington, Inc. is principally a land conservation organization. The site provides maps, trail guides and information about local natural history and public access to conserved landscapes. The Fund operates a limited grant program, and the site provides more information for qualified grant applicants.

For nearly 80 years, the Cushman Manufacturing Company was the Village's principal employer. Cushman developed and marketed nationally an iconic brand of American furniture. The site provides a rich compendium of Cushman materials, including selections from catalogs, advertising and photos made by Reuben Greene in the factory.

There is a page dedicated to current news and events in North Bennington. If you want to share news of events, please let us know.

The site collects more than 20 short essays about Village life written in the 1960s by Elizabeth Dwyer for The Bennington Banner. Her wise humor and insights into the spirit of "the North Village" remain fresh as ever in a new century.

This site contains many official documents, along with maps and other resources, relating to the Village of North Bennington. This is not an official web site of Village government, and does not provide copies of meeting warnings, minutes and other routine administrative materials.
