Vermont’s Sacred Acre

The cemetery adjacent to the Old First Church in Bennington, was given the title “Vermont’s Sacred Acre” by the VT Legislature. It is crowded with gravestones from the past 200+ years, including the poet Robert Frost. Both the Church and the Cemetery are landmarks of Old Bennington, which today, many travelers miss the opportunity to see with a highway by-pass that herds them “so efficiently” to their destination.
