Please do! But I am quite sure now that it is the angle. A total optical illusion!!!

ARGGGG!!!

Thanks for the link pumpkin, the picture they show looks like the old postcard. It must be the angle that your picture was taken from that it looks different!

Have been researching for about 1/2 an hour. This is a good historical link that refers to additions to the inn.

I may now have to stop at the Bennington Musuem to find out the real story, here! :)

I think I may have it. It almost looks like there may have been 2 buildings. The one in front on this picture is no longer there. I am thinking that the front view from yesterday is being blocked by another building.

It really does look bigger, I have been looking back and forth and forth and back at the pictures, morris. I am also trying to visualize it when we drive by, which is at least 2 times a month. That building on the left back is still there-it's the "side" view I posted. The other recent picture I posted was directly from the front. You don't see that little "jut" between the front and the side in either of the run down pictures. I will take one from in front of the church looking at the inn. That will help us! :)
It is a mystery!

It was bigger! To me it looks like there was a whole other building on the left.back.

thanks Pumpkin

I will have to take some pictures of it the next time we drive through Bennington, Sandy. I may be able to replicate the angles from the postcards, then we can compare better. Amazing how trees and lack of paint can make something look smaller.
Glad you like it, Ank!

Wow, that place looks a lot bigger than in the pictures you posted yesterday. A grand place in it's day.
