The Catamount Tavern, which was built in 1767, was originally named the Green Mountain Tavern. The Council of Safety and the "Green Mountain Boys" met here from 1767 to 1775. On May 9, 1775, Ethan Allen and 270 men, 40 whom were "Green Mountain Boys", captured Fort Ticonderoga from the British.


The Catamount Tavern burned down in 1871.

The first Post Office was located south of the Catamount Tavern until the building was moved to East Bennington by several yoke of oxen.
