North Bennington, Vermont

The North Bennington Railroad Station was constructed in 1880, replacing an earlier wood frame station located on the same site.
For over half a century, the depot served as the gateway to the village.
Beginning in the 1930's, with the gradual decline in the Rutland Railroad's passenger service, the structure fell into disrepair.
In 1971, Ethel (Babe) Scott McCullough and her husband, William R. Scott sponsored restoration of the building.
It has been in use since that time as the Village seat of government.
In 1996, the village obtained an enhancement grant from the Department of Transportation to again restore the building to Mr. & Mrs. Scott's vision.
