Local legislators have sponsored a resolution to be read into the legislative record today, “Juneteenth,” to honor Alexander Twilight.

In 1836, Brownington voters made Twilight the first African American elected to any state legislature in the country. While serving as an educator he designed and built the four-story granite Athenian Hall dormitory in Brownington. It is now the Old Stone House Museum.
