New Home For BHS
The Bennington Historical Society now has a new home!Finally we'll have a place to display some of the things we've already collected.
The building is on the NWcorner of Main and Stark streets. It has been many things over the years, Doc. Hickey's office and pharmacy, and I remember it as the hardware store. The building was erected in 1887-1888. It is one of the original buildings on Main Street. Now owned by Bob and Jan Mckelvie.
The space will give us the oppertunity to give the people of Bennington a chance to view some of the towns history.
Opening date is set for the weekend of Bennington Daze, then will be open a couple of days a week after that.
We are so excited to finally have a space to call home.
Hope to see you there!
