Step back to 1830... really!
Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts


Step back to 1830... really! Stroll through a rural New England town, Sturbridge Village, and watch as blacksmiths forge tools, farmers mend fences, cooks bring bread from fireplace ovens, and many other authentically costumed staff attend a 200 acre village.   
    More than 40 historic structures were moved here from the surrounding area and with careful study of 19th century objects, letters, and diaries--an authentic depiction of this time has been recreated.  
    Walk down country roads, along fields, and through homes as they were then; attend a country school, shop at the country store, visit a bank, sawmill and shoe shop as well as many other restored buildings including a museum.  You’ll enjoy taking part in the daily life and celebrations of a community set in the early 1800’s.
    This autumn wander among the fall colors, join in the harvests and come November 27-28, feast on an authentically prepared meal in a traditional Thanksgiving gathering (reservations are required). Special events occur
year round.
    A variety of accommodations are available nearby. Located appox. 1 hour from Boston, MA.  Admission: Adults, $15; Seniors, $13.50; Ages 6-15, $7.50; Under 6, free.
