Benton is located in northern Columbia County on State Route 487. The Benton area was first settled by two families in 1792. A schoolhouse was opened in 1799. Starting around 1860, tanning and lumber industries began to grow north of the borough.
Today, the Borough is the hub for many events like outdoor recreation, shopping, local events like the Benton Rodeo and Fireman’s Carnival. Follow us on Facebook to keep up on all the happenings in our beautiful little borough.
