About Sturbridge
map
The town of Sturbridge Massachusetts was founded in 1738 and is located in south central Massachusetts in Worcester County.

Sturbridge is well known for being the home of Old Sturbridge Village which was created to interpret the look of life in the early 1800s. Another charming part of town is the Town Common which is currently included in the National Historic District.

Homes as well as public buildings were built in the late 17th to early 18th century and have been outstandingly maintained to the point that they are very near to their original condition.

Summer Work & Play
Haying

Help the farmers with, arguably, the most important crop each and every year! In the 1800's farmers used the summer months working on the farm. One of their primary goals was to fill their barns with as much hay as it would fit in order to feed their animals through the next winter, never know how long that winter would be. Play

Work occupies most a farm family’s time in the summer, but kids are still kids.  Children’s books from the 1800’s are littered with all sorts of games and activities that kept children busy and entertained through the summer.   Try some of these activities with us at the Village: playing ball, fishing, school yard games and more will all be waiting for you to try your hand.  Planning Ahead

Purchase your tickets online in advance to expedite your entrance into the Village.

Kindred Spirits: A.B. Wells, Malcolm Watkins, and the Origins of Old Sturbridge Village
People collect all sorts of things for all sorts of reasons, and collectors of all types--young and old, experienced and amateur--have shaped the identities of iconic American museums and historic sites.

Old Sturbridge Village is the result of Albert B. Wells passion for the everyday furnishings, tools, gadgets, and oddities of early America and his collaboration with young antiques expert C. Malcolm Watkins, the museums first curator. Kindred Spirits explores the relationship between these two men and the roles they played in founding one of New Englands most cherished treasures, Old Sturbridge Village.
