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

It Took Months, But Someone Knows What the Signs Say

Several months ago this photo was posted, and the readers were asked if they could tell what the signs on the barn said. This morning we got an answer.

"I believe the sign on the left over the window says:

"Mrs. Lattimore's (or Lattimer's) Variety Store"

The one on the right over the door says:

"Sturbridge Post Office" --Charlie Blanchard"

Thanks, Charlie!
