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... (more)

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... (more)

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.

Hi, did I scare everyone off? Very sorry. My post was really just a personal message, not intended to intrude on good memories.

Just reading the board re: Benson's elephants. Bret was ahead of his time, letting Liz & Queenie in the pond and getting them exercise. That said, Ruth (Benson's 1963-1978) is still alive at Buttonwood Park Zoo, New Bedford, MA, by some estimates the 4th oldest Asian elephant in a US zoo. Last... (more)

I grew up with those elephants. Jackie, Queenie and Liz mostly. Tanya came later, correct? I used to stand in the elephant barn the whole visit and solicit information about the girls from Larry Records, their trainer. He would let me in and hold me up to touch the faces of the gentle giants. Best... (more)
