Spring Exhibit – Gravestones of Bennington
Enjoy a photographic exhibit of gravestones by Daniel Farber (1906-1998) in a special exhibit entitled Memento Mori: The Art and Commerce of Gravestones of Bennington. In addition this exhibit will feature original gravestones, including the markers created to memorialize Bennington’s first minister, Rev. Jedidiah Dewey. Some of these early headstones are on loan from the Shaftsbury Historical Society.
The Bennington Museum is just 10 minutes from the Eddington House Inn. There is a lovely scenic drive from the inn over Vermont Covered Bridges to the Village of Old Bennington, the Bennington Battle Monument and then on to Bennington Museum.
This is also a wonderful time of year to enjoy a walking tour of Old Bennington and a walk through the cemetery to visit additional old gravestones and markers as well as the grave of Vermont poet,Robert Frost.
Bennington Museum open daily except Wednesday. 802-447-1571
