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

Seeing Ourselves Through The Eyes Of Others

I was sent this link to a Blog by Google. It is about a couple visiting our town on vacation. In the posting the woman writes of her stay in a local B&B, her dining experiences, her impression of our town, and her visit to Old Sturbridge Village.

It would be a very wise thing for every business owner, selectmen, board member, and especially, the Town Administrator to read this blog.

The adage about not seeing the forest for the trees is especially appropriate once you have read the piece.
