The Park-McCullough House Association has hired Christopher Oldham as its new Executive Director. He will be the first full time employee leading the organization in almost 9 years. During that period of careful re-organization, all aspects of day-to-day operations at the “Big House” were managed by its Board of Directors, with help from part time staff. Oldham will assume his responsibilities on September 16. 

Notes on the newly redesigned website of The Fund for North Bennington, Inc. This website was completely redesigned this past winter, and updated with lots of new content. The site is now fully accessible to mobile devices. There is much 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.

We hope to develop this page for sharing news and views about North Bennington. It is not going to be simply an events calendar — more a combination of special listings and a forum for postings about matters of village concern. 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.
