Old Sturbridge Village

In 1935, the Wells family sought out a place to display their massive collection of New England antiquities. When they couldn't find one that was sufficient, they decided to build a museum. Since its founding, Old Sturbridge Village—a living-history museum with its own rich history—has granted visitors a chance to experience New England life in the 19th-century firsthand.

As they navigate a town and rustic countryside filled with 40 historic buildings, including an old schoolhouse, mansion homes, and three water-powered mills, visitors encounter heritage farm animals and interpreters in period costume. At regular times throughout the day, specific sites become interactive. A shoemaker cobbles a new pair of shoes, a blacksmith submerges steaming hunks of metal, and a soldier makes lifelike musket sounds with his mouth—all for the benefit of live audiences. Throughout the year, events such as cooking and craft-making classes further enhance the educational experience.
