Bennington gets a mention on the cover of the 2015 winter Yankee Magazine!

"A Town That Loves Covered Bridges and Artists"

""a jumble of artsy shops and caf├ęs have a jittery beat-poet buzz, spiced up with some highly regarded nearby museums"

The hardware for our merchant-inclusive website was made possible through a USDA Rural Development grant.  This grant has also made it possible to expand our street banner program, repair our public kiosk on Main Street, and improve signage at the entrances to downtown; all of which are very important to helping us accomplish our mission.
