Planning Your Visit
Guided tours happen on the hour while the house is open. No need to reserve your spot, simply drop by and we will fit you in. If you have a party of six or more, or would like to arrange for a tour outside of our normal hours, we offer private tours by appointment. Please contact us for more information.
The mansion is closed for the 2018 season. 2019 details coming soon! Thanks to all who visited this summer.
Tree and Plant Tour
Did you know that you can now take a self guided tree tour? This project was completed at the end of the 2017 season. This tour includes a walk with a map, facts about the trees on the property and an exhibit about how the landscape has changed over time.
If you are researching a particular aspect of Vermont, Second Empire architecture, or Victorian furniture, textiles or fashion, we have an extensive archive available to reference. We are currently working to digitize our collection, but physical access is granted in rare circumstances.
Other Local Attractions
The Mile-Around is a walking trail located in the woods behind the house, on the family's former farmland. A single mile walk was set up by Trenor Park to promote calm and relaxation, and has been open to public use since the 1980s. The land is now managed by the Fund for North Bennington, which has expanded the single walk with over 6 miles of accessible trails. The woods and fields are a favorite spot for neighbors, and have become a daily routine for many. northbennington.org
