A little farther along, we found this gorgeous barn that stole my breath away. We pulled over and I gave this beauty a 30 minute photo shoot–she was that photogenic!
Just as you drive into Bennington, you are greeted by this amazing old structure, formerly the Walloomsic Inn, which sits on the corner of Route 9 and Park Way. It has been in this condition for as long as I have been in the area (about 30 years). I’ve captured its best side.
It sits directly across the street from a white, clapboard church. The two could not be more poorly matched. UPDATE: The Bennington Museum website has a very interesting article about this house.
And right across the street–the pristine Old First Church. Robert Frost is buried in its cemetery. We didn’t have time to look, but next time we will. His home is a small museum about a half an hour north of Bennington, but it’s closed in the winter.
After all that picture-taking, I was hungry; so we stopped into Your Belly’s Deli. Isn’t that a great name! The sandwiches and salads are delicious.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
