Bennington Battlefield State Historic Site is the location of a Revolutionary War battle between the British forces of General John Burgoyne and Colonel Friedrich Baum against the American forces under Brigadier General John Stark and Colonel Seth Warner. This battle was fought in August 1777 in a British effort to capture American storehouses at Bennington to restock their depleting provisions. The British forces had underestimated the strength of their enemy and most of their men were killed or taken prisoner while the Americans sustained smaller losses. The British surrendered on October 17, 1777, after two unsuccessful battles in Saratoga. Additional facilities that the park include game fields. The park is open May thru Labor Day daily from 10am-7pm, Labor Day to Columbus Day on weekends only.

The Bethlehem Historical Association is located on Route 144 in the old Cedar Hill Schoolhouse. The building was originally a one-room school that was constructed in 1859. In 1907, architect Marcus T Reynolds (D&H Building, First Trust Bank, Gideon Putnam Hotel) redesigned the schoolhouse making several improvements that included a second room and the notable cupola. It continued as a school until 1960 when the school district was centralized and the brick building was abandoned.

Many people who lived near the facility, who had gone to school there and were interested in the historical significance of the school and its area, organized an effort to save the school and find a use for it in the community. The Town of Bethlehem Historical Association was formed and received a charter from the New York State Board of Regents in 1965.

By agreement, the Town of Bethlehem maintains the building and grounds and the Association maintains the museum and its collections. The Association is a membership organization which gathers and preserves historic items and information concerning the town's past. To adapt the school for museum purposes, the Association received a grant in 1968 from the New York State Council on the Arts. Exhibits in the permanent collection feature the Home, the Farm, the Hudson River, Ice Harvesting and, of course, the School.

The Association has on file a wide selection of books, maps, pictures, video tapes, reports and artifact materials that can be made available to members and the public interested in studying the history of the Town of Bethlehem.
