Old First Church

The Old First Church in Bennington is one of the best known, and one of the first, churches in the state. It was designed by Lavius Fillmore, built in 1805 and dedicated in 1806.

The church is an excellent example of early colonial architecture, and the adjacent cemetery serves as the final resting place for such notables as Robert Frost and the seventy-five soldiers who dies at the Battle of Bennington.

The Old First Church holds such a prominent place in Vermont history that in 1935 the Vermont legislature designated it "Vermont's Colonial Shrine."

The Old First Church can be found on Route 9, just prior to entering Bennington.
