Haven’t been here much. On this day we took some back roads and discovered a town sign that looks like some kids made.

We did not stop at Stonehouse Museum but learned about it through our 1st 251 Club gathering in Montpelier in September 2021. A featured stop on Vermont’s African American Heritage Trail, the museum tells the story of African American Alexander Lucius Twilight. Mr. Twilight was first African-American college graduate and state legislator in the United States and he built the Stone House which he called Athenian Hall.

Evansville Trading Post looked interesting but we did not stop.

The Annual Native American Pow Wow (or Abenaki Pow Wow), is held in Evansville, Vermont, where you can experience Native American drums, singing groups, and dancers, listen to Abenaki stories and enjoy tasty foods.

Later, I learned that the Amish have moved in and have successfully established themselves in the community.

On a trip back from Mike n Kims, we stopped at the Evansville Trading Post and was not impressed.


On another trip back from Mike n Kim’s we explored a little more. We turned right, off of Rt 58 and onto Hunt Hill Rd, and then left on Schoolhouse Rd. At a Y we veered left onto Brownington Center Rd, looking for the Old Stone House Museum.  I did not see any road signs and should have veered right onto Old Stone House Rd. It is a scenic drive along Dutton Brook and back to Rt. 58. In Orleans, we saw a sign for the museum so we followed the signs. To our amazement we discovered the official Brownington town sign made of granite. We didn’t think they had a sign. Further up the road, we dicoverd the museum. It is a beautiful area nestled in a little hamlet like village. I did not take pictures of the museum because I want to wait until we visit it first. Had we turned right onto to Old Stone House Rd., I doubt we would have found the town sign. I love it when that happens!
