Apiary grants awarded!

We have been awarded two grants, as well as received equipment donations, to allow us to establish a heritage educational apiary at the Museum.  The apiary will be one of the phases of our Historic Green Spaces Project.  We’ll keep you updated on our progress!

We’ve closed the Museum as winter settles into our village.  Tours will no longer be available.  Thank you to all our visitors for another wonderful season!

Building a Backyard Compost Workshop At the Old Stone House Museum, Brownington, VT July 8, 2018, 3-5pm

Are you interested in learning how to build a backyard compost system? Or, maybe you are an experienced backyard composter looking to share your knowledge with your community? If either apply to you, we have an event you won’t want to miss!

Be a part of the backyard composting conversation at the Old Stone House Museum with Master Composter and Northeast Kingdom Waste Management District Outreach Coordinator, Shannon Choquette. This 2-hour program will focus on the general composting knowledge necessary to successfully compost in your backyard, and will feature a hands-on activity of rebuilding the Old Stone House Museum’s 3-bin compost system. If you’d like to get your hands involved, be sure to have gardening gloves.

A message from our new Director, Molly Veysey

Hello Old Stone House Community!  My name is Molly Veysey, the new Director at the Old Stone House Museum/Orleans County Historical Society.  How very excited I am to be a part of this new chapter of the Museum’s future!  As a native to northern Vermont and resident of Irasburg, I have an innate respect for our history and culture as well as an abiding passion for education and community service.  Steeped in history and committed to community, the Old Stone House Museum is the perfect place to put that respect and passion to work.

I remain grateful to former Director Peggy Day Gibson, who put her passions to work here for the last decade.  Her vision and great efforts are evident in every aspect of this place.  Peggy’s impacts on the Old Stone House will certainly not be forgotten.

As I acclimate to my new roles, I feel fortunate to have fallen in with such a good crowd of staff members, Board members, volunteers and supporters of the Old Stone House.   I am looking forward to seeing you all either at the Museum’s offices (open all year around) or this summer at one or more of our fantastic events.  Please come by and visit!
