Old Sturbridge Village

Old Sturbridge Village, the largest outdoor history museum in the Northeast, depicts a rural New England town of the 1830s.

Access to Town Information

Town of Sturbridge

Sturbridge is a vibrant town located at the crossroads of New England. Long before the first English settlers came to Massachusetts, the Native Americans called this place Tantiousques and knew it well as the place where the Bay Path and the Connecticut Path met. Today these early thoroughfares have been replaced by the Massachusetts Turnpike, Routes 20 and 131 and Interstate 84, and many travelers still pass through our town each day.

More About This House

Minutes to Rte 20, Rte 90 and Rte 84. Approximately 35 minutes to Worcester or Hartford, and 55 miles to Boston. This home offers privacy and yet convenience to everything Sturbridge has to offer. It is located in an area of higher priced new construction, yet the stone barn on one side and the corn fields on the other side of this house make it seem like your own private piece of paradise. The barn next door belongs to a private social dance group that meets for line dancing and square dancing (see www.hayloftsteppers.net). Get your dancing shoes on and make new friends steps from your home. Also nearby is Wells State Park, which offers 12 miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and cross-county skiing See www.mass.gov/locations/wells-state-park for more information. And of course, Sturbridge is home to Old Sturbridge Village, a living history museum with a collection of authentic 19th c. homes and buildings, a working farm, dairy barn, forge and other craftspeople.
It's a great place to call home!
