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

New Mobil Version Of Thinking Out Loud


  1. Wally, this mobile app is all well and good. But to use it, to enjoy it, we need TOPICS! We need topics that stir up this sleepy town. We need topics that will get people interested in taking their town back! Topics that will incite the townsfolk. Like it or not, you hold the key to get people caring. There is no other site that I know of that covers Sturbridge topics. You need to talk it up with friends and neighbors. You need to add news, gossip, and subjects that will stir things up! I have lived in Sturbridge for 13 years. I don't know you. I could have passed you dozens of time and not have realized it. But I envy the fact that you have an opportunity to affect out town in a positive way with your SturbridgeCommon.Com. Talk it up! Make a difference!

  2. Thank you for the comment. I appreciate the feedback immensly. I am always open to suggestions.
