Growing up in Bennington in the 1950s (Ted Bird, local historian)

Please join local historian Ted Bird as he describes life in Bennington when he was a youngster. Included in his presentation will be a discussion of the Bennington schools, where kids went after school, churches, shops and places of employment. Especially interesting will be his discussion of rites of passage and how they entertained themselves.

Ted was born in Arlington and moved to Bennington when he was 12. He graduated from  Bennington High School in 1958 and with a partner bought Abe Noveck’s Music and Camera store in 1962.  He married to a Shaftsbury girl–Phyllis Spaulding– and they had three children, two of whom live in the Bennington area. Presently he sells commercial real estate for Hoisington Realty, Inc.
