Those Places Thursday – Old Sturbridge Village

One of the quintessential places of my youth was Old Sturbridge Village. Located southwest of Worcester, Massachusetts, just off the Massachusetts Turnpike, the village is an outdoor history museum which celebrates the 1830s. When I traveled back to New England this summer, the village was on my list of must dos. While the village was not exactly how I remembered it (from all those long forgotten field trips of my youth), it was still charming and fun to explore with my children. I would recommend stopping by whenever you are in the area.
