The Old First Church in Bennington
July 29, 2010
On a recent morning I visited The Old First Church in Bennington, the first church in Vermont to reflect the separation of church and state. The church, built in the early 1800s, includes a beautiful cemetery where Robert Frost is buried.
My favorite detail about this lovely, peaceful place are the words engraved on Frost’s gravestone: “I had a lover’s quarrel with the world.”
