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

Where is it? No, Really, Where is it? I Haven't a Clue.
Yesterday I posted an old photograph and asked the readers to identify the building. This morning I found that it had been identified by "Stur" as the building that houses the Handmaiden, and the Copper Stallion Restaurant. Wow. That was fast, and correct, too. Maybe just a bit too fast. So, today I am posting another old photograph. As you can see on the postcard it is labeled "East Main St. Sturbridge, Mass.", but where exactly is it? This photograph has puzzled me for some time, but I have a good idea where it possibly could be. Any help in ID'ing the location would be great!
