Stop 10—Cricket Hill

Black-capped chickadee.

Our tour of the natural history of the Bennington College campus ends at the Cricket Hill Admissions building. Take a moment to enjoy the 1840 Greek revival farmhouse architecture. Cricket Hill was once home to the Jennings’ farm manager, Mr. Bingham, whose family likely owned the property before the Jennings. In the past, this building has been used as a guest house, for faculty apartments, and even as a nursery school.

Now that your walk is completed, stop in the Admissions Office for a cup of coffee and take a moment on the porch to enjoy the mountain-filled view and listen for the persistent calls of the black-capped chickadees as they fly among the birches and pines.
