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...

Town Hall / Center Office Building Committee Meeting To Be Held, Please Use Rear Door

The Town Hall/Center Office Building Committee will meet on Thursday, January 13, 2011 at 7:00 PM in Veteran’s Memorial Hall of the Town Hall to discuss the following:


1)      Meeting Minutes

2)      OPM Update

3)      Architect Update

4)      Punch List/Warranty Item Update

5)      Technology Update

6)      New Business

7)      Old Business


  1. 'Think we will ever find out why the front doors are not handicap accessible? Anyone?

  2. Go to the meeting and ask, then report back here.

  3. If anyone in the know felt like explaining what happened, they would have by now.

  4. They don't know what happened. The review of the plans was done, but the law was overlooked, and should not have been. They assumed it would be fine since so much was done to bring the current building up to ADA code. No much more thought was put on it from the towns pint of view, but the architect should have known much better. It can be fixed. Going to the meeting and asking what happened, what now, and what next should be done.

  5. "Just watched tonight's meeting of the BOS. It seems that, when they were planing the project, the building committee for the town hall and center school renovation project had spoken about the front doors and they are the ones who decided that they wanted to keep the "historical" look rather than make the doors handicap compliant.
