Old Sturbridge Village is a living, breathing, vibrant village depicting life in New England from 1790-1840. Visitors can meet historians in costume and tour 40 antique buildings, including a country store, school, and water-powered mills.

Our collection of more than 50,000 artifacts made or used in early New England includes quilts, clocks, pottery, and  fine furniture.

Where does our food come from? At our Freeman Farm, visitors learn how important the harvest was to early New England farmers – and how much work was involved in preserving food to last through the winter.

Visitors can meet heritage breed cattle, oxen, sheep, chickens, and pigs, and see the seasonal rhythms of work on a 19th-century farm.  Be sure to check out our Critter Counter for new arrivals at the Village this spring.
