I am looking at scheduling field trips for my summer camp and was wondering if Benson's is back up and running.

I would like to know where the replica F-unit type train engine and cars went after they sold the Benson's park, and if it is still running anywhere or there.

I have the best memories of Bensons Animal Farm. Bensons was my first jod in the early eighties. I worked selling animal food at the petting zoo. Now im in my fifties and enjoy the memories of my highschool years and my first job at Bensons. Thank you for the interesting website.

There is also a Benson's Wild Animal Farm museum opening in the future at the old Elephant Barn in the park that has been under construction by volunteers while fundraising is ongoing. On weekends you may also visit the wonderful store The Friends of Benson Park operates offering refreshments, souvenirs and things to help enjoy a visit to the new park all while helping to support the fundraising efforts of this 501(c)(3) non-profit.

There is a book "Benson's Wild Animal Farm" by Bob Goldsack. It is available on Amazon and through Arcadia Publishing.

Field Trip! What an exciting phrase for 4th graders to hear. From a 3 room schoolhouse in Shirley MA off on an aventure to be remembered forever. A school bus loaded with excitement headed to Hudson NH and Bensons Wild Animal Farm. None of us had much money in our pockets, no need to. Walking the paths and venturing into the different buildings to view animals we had only read about was all we needed. Shared my popcorn with the monkey sitting atop a pole. Ring the bell and he would pull the little bucket up and feast. What a grand day, what a special memory for myself and all my classmates. Many a tale was told on the return trip to home. That was 67 years ago....

I have a clip of an Amish man walking in the corn pasture and it looks like he is carrying a stick in one hand and possible corn in the other hand. It has your name on it and Wilton stamped in along with a copyright C.

A couple weeks ago I met with a man who showed me available areas to "adopt" he was going to send me an email with information. I have not gotten the email as of yet. If anyone knows who I can contact that would be great. I am embarrassed to admit I cannot remember his name.

Hello, I am a graduate student doing a power point about rehabilitated historic sites and buildings, and I was wondering if I could get permission to use some before and after photos of Benson's (cited and credited to the owner, of course) to go along with the power point discussion. Any information would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I was wondering if you are having a clean up day? I am searching for volunteer work. Please let me .

My daughter saw a shot glass I have from Bensons Animal Farm. My parents took my brother and I when we were kids. So she said lets see if it's still open. She looked it up on the internet. It was great to read about it. I wanted to take my 3 kids to a zoo this summer. Would love to visit. I am 50 years old now, so it was quite some time since my visit. Glad to hear it's still got love and life in it.

Hi. I was at Bensons this past Sunday 6/14/15. I lost my engagement ring and wedding band on the large rocks behind the playground near the hill with the 9/11 memorial. I had taken them off to put sunscreen on my children and then forgot to pick them up before taking a walk around the park. I went back an hour later and they were gone. I have filed a lost property report with Husdon police and put up a few signs at the park. I know this is a long shot but please, if anyone knows of someone that might have found them, they can do the right thing and turn them into the Husdon police. Thank you

The sign that shows Arthur's likeness and the one with Mr. Elegant are in fact from My World of Pets that was located at Arthur's Industrial Park in Merrimack. These were from before he owned Benson's.
