We were very disappointed when we arrived that the house was not open to the public for viewing. We were able to walk around the grounds which were very lovely. The house it self looked like it would have been interesting to see inside.

We spent quite awhile looking for the mansion based on Tripadvisor's map and directions - finally gave up. Turns out, the Park-McCullough house is located in NORTH Bennington, a totally separate town. So before you set out for your adventure, check other sources for directions,...More
