Founded in 1932 as a women's liberal arts college, Bennington College is now a coeducational institution with a campus of 60 buildings on 550 acres in rural Vermont. Campus buildings and the landscape reflect an evolution from farm to estate to campus, and include an 18th-century saltbox cottage once home to the poet Robert Frost, as well as several distinctive International Style buildings. Bennington will undertake a comprehensive planning process that involves documenting its campus resources and establishing preservation priorities in the context of its existing master plan.

Bennington College received a Getty grant in 2005 for $150,000 to support campus heritage planning.
