About the Museum

Overview

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Old Stone House Museum and Historic Village chronicles the history of Orleans County through its collections, exhibits, events, and educational programs. A featured stop on Vermont’s African-American Heritage Trail, the museum tells the story of Alexander Twilight— America’s first African-American college graduate and state legislator, and builder of the Old Stone House. Holding more than 75,000 objects in its permanent collection, the Old Stone House is at the heart of the Brownington Historic District– an early nineteenth century neighborhood. We help to educate over 1,500 people per year through tours, children’s programming and adult enrichment classes.

Mission

To share the unique history of Orleans County and the Old Stone House, where we believe in preserving our local heritage, educating all who visit, and inspiring our future!
