AAA Editor Notes

Old Sturbridge Village, on SR 20W .5 mi. w. of jct. I-84 exit 2 and I-90 exit 9, is a re-created New England rural village of the early 1800s. This 200-acre living-history museum contains more than 40 restored buildings moved from various parts of New England. Throughout the village costumed staff interpret the daily life and work of early New Englanders through four seasons. Paths lead to a countryside area where three mills are powered by water in season. Nearby is a working historical farm with oxen, cattle, sheep and pigs as well as gardens with heirloom varieties of flowers, vegetables and herbs. Other demonstrations include blacksmithing, hearth cooking, shoemaking and pottery. Displays include collections of antique clocks, firearms and glassware. The visitor center houses Kidstory—a learning gallery where families can explore history. On select evenings in December, Christmas by Candlelight is offered. Picnicking is permitted. Food is available.
