Old Sturbridge Village

1 Old Sturbridge Village Road, off Route 20 Sturbridge, MA, 01566 Phone: 508-347-3362 Toll-Free: 800-733-1830

More than 40 historical buildings help bring the past alive at this 1830s rural village

Entering Old Sturbridge Village means stepping into a re-created 1830s town in rural New England. Forty historical buildings help make that happen, from the Cider Mill with its original cedar press to Fitch House with a rose trellis at the door and an extensive collection of agricultural tools and equipment inside. Visitors can admire the granite-walled vault inside the Greek Revival-style Thompson Bank, the textile exhibit at the Fenno House, the oldest building in the village, and the original desks in the District School. See barrels being made in the Cooper Shop, lumber being cut in the Sawmill and table legs being turned on a lathe in the Cabinetmaking Shop. Costumed historians demonstrate the crafts and cooking of the time and are happy to answer questions.
