While being the only Revolutionary war battle fought on Vermont soil, the Battle of Hubbardton was a key part of the decisive Saratoga campaign. The successful rear-guard action at Hubbardton played an important role in the upcoming American victories at Bennington(Hoosick, NY) and Saratoga. The...More

We went there with the dogs to just see the history. Walked the trails and watched the canons being fired. Really cool experience!! Inside the building the display in the back gives a great synopsis of the battle. Worth the $3. I left my phone...More

It takes some time and winding curves in the road to get to this battlefield, but it's definitely worth it. Fittingly, this is a bit of a forgotten historical event, but was absolutely vital to the eventual American victory at Saratoga. It's a beautiful, tranquil...More

My friend & I arrived here late on a beautiful summer afternoon. The curator was getting ready to close but invited us in to see the museum. He went on to spend 1 1/2 hrs. telling the history of what went on here. Having lived...More

If you are driving up route 30 past Lake Bomoseen in Vermont and see the signs for Hubbardton Battlefield I highly recommend making time for a detour! The battlefield and small museum have by far one of the most breathtaking views in all of Vermont...More

It is off the beaten path, but worth spending an hour or two. The only Revoluntionary War battle to take place on VT soil took place here. A small but interesting museum, and gift shop. The ranger has been there for over 20 years and...More

Traveling along Route 4 from Rutland VT to NY State looking for something interesting to do? Try making a slight detour at Exit 5 north to Hubbardton Battlefield where you can step back into the past by re-imagining Vermont's only revolutionary battle site. The peaceful,...More

A quiet battlefield with majestic views of the Green Mountains. The small museum adds to the serenity. The surrounding hills have practically nothing modern

Today the Hubbardton battlefield is a low-key and serene place that belies the violence, struggle, and heroism here in 1777. This was the only revolutionary war battle fought in Vermont. The British nominally won, but their advance was stalled, allowing most of the colonists to...More
