If you’re looking for ways to celebrate your 226th birthday, consider a classic 19th-century apple and cheese festival — á la Alexander Twilight’s time. Twilight, born in 1795, was the first Black American to earn a bachelor’s degree and to serve in a state legislature, and he founded the grammar school that eventually became Brownington’s Old Stone House Museum & Historic Village. The festival — a vintage tradition the museum is reviving for Vermont’s second annual Alexander Twilight Day — is an opportunity to peep some leaves, explore the buildings and grounds, and sample local food and drink. Museum board president Carmen Jackson and Rep. Katherine Sims (D-Craftsbury) speak on Twilight’s life and legacy.
