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...

Help Plan Sturbridge's 275th Anniversary


I am asking folks who might be interested in planning an event or events related to the 275th anniversary to attend a meeting on Wednesday, February 13 at 4pm here in Town Hall .  We can discuss the scope, funding and timeline and gauge interest in participation.  Feel free to pass along to other interested parties as any committee will need to be driven by local residents.

Thank you.

  1. I believe your 275th Anniversary could use an able bodied Town Crier. I have worked for the Publick House and The Chamber of Commerce and I believe I can help your celebration. You may contact me at (h) 413-245-4684 or (c) 856-265-3344. Or I look forward to hearing from you - Rip Pellaton / Town Crier.

  2. Rip, I am sure the town would enjoy your services. Please let the folks at town hall know.
