Welcome to the newly redesigned website of The Fund for North Bennington, Inc. You will find lots of new content as well as a new look. The site is now fully accessible to mobile devices.

Check out the fresh material in the photo galleries, particularly those showing parades and historic streetscapes. There are new stories from Burton Bromley of village life around 1900, and of working at the Cushman factory for 56 years. An historic series of detailed maps (the Sanborn maps) of the village from a century ago is now available courtesy of the Library of Congress. And there are many new contemporary photos of North Bennington.

Nearly 40 percent of the visitors to this site arrive by mobile devices or tablets. The original site — first uploaded in 2008 — was not mobile friendly. The new design should work very well for those of you who rely on your phones — although the photos still look best when seen on a big screen.

We hope to develop use this page for sharing news and views about North Bennington. It is not going to be a traditional calendar — more of a forum for ideas and news of special items. Please be in touch if you would like to contribute or have suggestions! And please explore this site, even if you have done so many times before. There is a lot to discover here about the Village of North Bennington.
