(3.8/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
The Park-McCullough Historic House is one of the finest and best-preserved Victorian mansions in New England. It is a thirty-five room mansion, set on 200 acres (80 hectares) of grounds, and located off Vermont Route 67A in North Bennington, Vermont, USA.The house was built in 1864–65 by attorney and entrepreneur Trenor W. Park (1823–1882), who was born in nearby Woodford, Vermont but amassed his fortune overseeing the mining interests of John C. Fremont in California. It was designed by Henry Dudley, a prolific New York architect of the popular firm of Diaper and Dudley. The house cost $75,000 and the family moved in on Christmas Day, 1865. His descendants made extensive renovations to the house in 1889–90, largely in order to entertain President Benjamin Harrison who had come to town to dedicate the new Bennington Battle Monument.The Park-McCullough house is an important example of an American country house in the Second Empire Style. It also incorporates architectural features of the Romantic Revival style popular at the time.The house is now owned by a non-profit organization and is open to the public.

  • A beautiful mansion and gardens that gives you a look how things were back in the day. Our tour guide really new her stuff and gave us a great tour. We were also blessed to have a great weather to do ...  more »
  • A well maintained house just remind to people that there was once a mighty family before who built a prestigious home to be admired by generations to come. 
  • 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.
