Bennington Things to Do: 10 reviews and 15 photos
The Park-McCullough House, a thirty-five room Victorian Mansion, was completed in 1865 for Trenor and Laura Park. Trenor Park, a Bennington lawyer, had made a fortune in California successfully managing John C. Fremont's Mariposa gold mines. Returning East, he commissioned architects Diaper and Dudley to design this "summer home," a classic example of French Second Empire Style.
In 1891 President Benjamin Harrison stayed overnight in the house during his visit to dedicate the Bennington Battle Monument. 1891 was also the 100th anniversary of Vermont in the U.S. Confederation.
The story of the Park and McCullough families is quite fascinating. Click on the website link to learn more about them.
