A private and picturesque Northeast Kingdom village, the museum includes six buildings on fifty five acres. Seemingly untouched by time, this hillside town is centered around a monumental stone schoolhouse and dormitory built in 1834-36 by the Rev. Alexander Twilight, the world’s first African American college graduate, and state legislator. The stone house now houses 25 rooms of exhibits focusing on 19th century life in northern Vermont. The collection includes furniture, textiles, photographs, pottery, folk and fine art, and many of the tools and utensils of daily life. The exhibits continue in Twilight’s own house, two more historic houses, and a traditional barn.
