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

Mohegan Sun ready to pounce in Massachusetts

They would like to work with Old Sturbridge Village.

Now, there's a sure bet.

Mohegan Sun ready to pounce in Massachusetts - Norwich, CT - Norwich Bulletin


  1. The Village will likely only support whatever the town of Sturbridge supports.

    When the day arrives that both support casinos - that's when I list my house for sale.

  2. The town will never support casinos, nor will OSV, however, if a further increase in numbers at OSV was an off shoot of a casino that was down the road, so be it.

    Unfortunately, I see the casino coming eventually, no matter how we feel about it. Their presence is becoming entrenched, and after awhile, that is something hard to fight.

  3. Why have a casino ..... we already gamble with the state paying taxes.... I guess reducing the state income tax in half would now pay for the Quinn bill.
