Visitor Information

The Old Stone House Museum opened in 1925, as the museum of Orleans County history. The massive four story granite block building was constructed in 1836 to serve as the dormitory for the Orleans County Grammar School. It was purchased in 1917 by the Orleans County Historical Society to save it from destruction by a building company, intent upon using the granite blocks for railroad bridges. Inside its thirty rooms are exhibits of furniture, paintings, tools, textiles, folk art, and the stuff of everyday life, which tell the story of early Orleans County. Two barns display antique agricultural implements, boats, horse drawn  transportation & maple sugaring equipment.
