Vermont’s Colonial Shrine

The VT Legislature designated the Old First Church in Bennington as Vermont’s Colonial Shrine. The congregation, made up of those seeking religious freedom, was founded in 1762, and the church was constructed in 1806 at a cost of $8,000. The inside of the church has been maintained “religiously”, and is in beautiful condition today.
