Nestled in the southwest corner of the state of Vermont, near New York and Massachusetts, the town of Bennington was chartered in the 1740's and grew over the centuries to town of thousands of people today. This birds eye view by the notable Bird's Eye maker, Stoner, shows an idyllic town, its grid of streets, and points of interest. Conveys a sense of the region, and includes a numbered key at the bottom that identifies churches, hotels and manufacturers. A rarity, we only find a handful of these bird's eyes held in institutions.
