The tallest structure in Vermont opened for the season this weekend.
The Bennington Monument, originally opened in 1891, remains the tallest structure across the state -- standing three hundred and six feet tall. The state-owned historic site commemorates the Revolutionary War Battle of Bennington and draws the attention of tourists from across the globe.
"We are really looking forward to a big season this year. It is supposed to be a dry summer, so this will be the place to come up and get a good view. I mean you can't beat the vista up here -- you just can't. It is just wonderful," said Mike Chapman with the Bennington Monument.
Chapman said the site sees an average of 40,000 visitors a season. The monument will be open seven days a week until the end of October.
