    Bennington Township Reviews

    It is a little boring, but it is quiet and safe. The people are generally okay. There is not a whole lot to do, but it is kind of pretty, if you like the whole overgrown and rural look.
    Review Bennington Township
    very few industries and businesses in town. Mostly farming
    Average food and service. very small variety and choice
