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

A Mystery House: The Ed Nichols House
The photograph, along with many other photos, and documents are part of my collection originally owned by Winifred Tillyer, Sturbridge historian. When the Historical Society obtains space for a permanent display of artifacts and documents in town, I will arrange that the collection can be displayed there. In the meantime, I will put them here for you to enjoy.
Does anyone know where this old house is, or was?
