  • Bennington County, Vermont —
    Information Updated for:  Apr 12, 2009
  • Formed from:  portions of land granted by Gov. Benning Wentworth of New Hampshire in 1749.
    Established:  17-Mar-1778
    County Seat:  Bennington, Vermont

    County history - Bennington County is named in honor of Benning Wentworth (24 July 1696 - 14 October 1770) was the colonial governor of New Hampshire from 1741 to 1766; the son of the John Wentworth who had been Lieutenant Governor, he was born and died in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.   NOTE:  Wentworth enriched himself by a clever scheme of selling land in what is now the state of Vermont to developers, in spite of jurisdictional claims for this region by the Colony of New York. He often named the new townships after famous contemporaries in order to gain support for his enterprises (e.g. Rutland after John Manners, 3rd Duke of Rutland; Bennington he named after himself). Ultimately, this scheme led to a great deal of contention between New York, New England, and the settlers in Vermont. It created friction between the northeast colonies, and the dispute was hardly settled by the formation of Vermont as a state.

Montpelier was the Capital in 1805, It later defeated several attempts by Burlington and other towns to succeed it as state capital, especially in 1857 when fire left the statehouse a mere shell. The present state capitol (the third constructed on the site; completed in 1859) is built of Vermont granite.
