Town, Vermont National Guard Look at Land Swap

The Select Board in Bennington has approved an agreement with the Vermont National Guard that will allow the town to acquire the Bennington armory if and when a new one is constructed for the local unit.

The town broached the idea of exchanging the properties in June 2011 as a potential spot for a new readiness center to replace the local Vermont National Guard headquarters. The Guard had been looking at multiple sites in Bennington County.
