Sixty miles west of Boston, Massachusetts there is the small New England town of Sturbridge. Located at the junction of I-90 (The Mass Pike), and I-84 it has become known as the "Crossroads of New England". The town was first settled over 300 years ago, and like other small New England towns it has grown just enough over the years to be in a difficult place today. How do we embrace the future without forgetting how we got to our present? How do we attract the right kind of growth, and maintain who we are? And, what about our culture out here in Central Massachusetts?
These pages will cause one to think about how to protect what we have, our future direction, and how to move on in the very best way.
Those thoughts, and other ramblings, will hopefully inspire more thought, conversation, action, and occasionally a smile...
...seems to be working so far

Damn, if it Don't Look the Same, Marge!
The building in this old photo, taken around 1900-1910, looks very much as it does today.
Can you locate it? Do you know who owns it? Can you read what the signs say on the front of building? If you can, let me know. I can't read them for the life of me.
"Just goes to show ya, Burt, the moah things change 'round here, the moah things stay the same."
