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

Picture Post Set Up In The Tornado Zone

The Corps in Partnership with the Environmental Science Class at THS has allowed the placement of a 360 degree environmental awareness photo post along the Grand Trunk Trail in Brimfield, in the Heart of the tornado zone.  Students over the next few years will also be visiting the site and monitoring the photo's as this area recovers from the June 1, 2011 tornado.

Trail users are encouraged to stop and take photo's aligning their camera to the top of the post (instructions posted on the post) and submit their photos on line to

You can also add a picture post to our landscape so that scientists can monitor the environment.  For more information, go to the link listed above.
