Autumn in the North Cemetery.

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

Old Sturbridge Village reported that last month, it had its best January attendance in 10 years.

January attendance at the recreated colonial village museum increased 23 percent to 4,016 over January 2007, and village administrators say the strong month could be an introduction to "one of our best years of the decade."

A mix of warm, indoor activities and outdoor events like sleigh rides and ice harvesting, as well as the reopening of the Oliver Wight Tavern, attracted visitors, museum administrators said.

Over the past two years, the museum has brought in about $4 million in grants and donations. "
