Overview
More
The Park-McCullough House is the crown jewel of North Bennington, Vermont. Representing 150 years of Vermont history Park-McCullough also serves as a contemporary prism through which citizens of North Bennington and surrounding towns gather to share myriad perspectives and pleasures. The grounds are open daily, and tours are available on weekends. Additionally public programming, theatre and a music series are provided seasonally. Arguably the finest intact Victorian mansion in New England, the house was built in 1864-65 by attorney and entrepreneur Trenor W. Park (1823-1882) who amassed his fortune overseeing the California mining interests of John C. Fremont. Four generations of the family have lived on the property, including two governors, Hiland Hall and John G. McCullough. The thirty-five room mansion stands an important example of American Second Empire Style set on 200 acres in Southern Vermont. The mansion is the perfect venue for unique and memorable weddings and celebrations. Guests may tour the mansion, stroll the grounds, play games on the expansive lawns or relax on the wrap-around veranda during cocktail hour. The Carriage Barn is the perfect venue for live music, receptions and dance.

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

We didn't actually get to go in (just a tour bus group)... BUT a wonderful lady, Muriel, saw us and came out to give us a history lesson on the family that lived there! Beautiful house and grounds.

This is a beautiful mansion and gardens that give a glimpse of another age. Built in the 1860's it lacks the over the top glitz of the Newport Mansions but rather shows elegance. Good tour of the house, relaxing garden and yard to enjoy while...More
