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

Could This Be The Hidden Church In The Old Postcard Above?

From Bob Briere:

Style is exactly the same, but the uphill in the background would have to be where the current Police/Fire complex is. There does not look like Route 15 is there, so it could be an older photo than that road. It also looks to set back further than the church was in my younger days.
But, the steeple is the same except the photo OSV has shows a color difference which is also what I remember. Could have been painted before what i have. And thast is the white area around the oval topped bell openings.
Tell you what-- I will copy the photo I have and send it as soon as I get it done as an attachment in another e-mail.
