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

A Sturbridge Mystery Photo

The above notations are from the rear of the Chicago-SunTimes photograph shown below, and  above.  Do you when the photo was taken.  The original source of the photograph gave 1972 as the date of the photo, but he photo appears older.  Do you know when it was taken?

  1. The last time I remember anyone lining up for typhoid shots in Sturbridge was after the flood in 1955. This picture has to be 1955 or, quite likely, even earlier.
