    “Bennington, NE is a great place to live and raise a family!  It has that small town feel with a caring community.  Local businesses are thriving and neighborhood communities are growing.  It is a place where everyone helps each other out from fundraisers for families in need of financial assistance due to adverse times in their lives to raising money for community projects like cleaning up the town and area highways of littler to tree planting ceremonies.  The schools are always rated very high in the state and the teachers are awesome!  Bennington is a quiet little gem of a town!”  -Current Resident, Feb. 8th, 2018
