Visit the Cabinetmaking Shop (in the former Hands-on Craft Center) on Gallery Row to see the cabinetmaker at work. The shop is where furniture, architectural elements, and agricultural implements are made for the Village’s households, farms, and gardens using historical examples from the Village’s Museum Collection as prototypes.

The Cabinetmaking Shop is part of a larger effort to establish an active cabinetmaking program as part of the daily historic interpretation at the Village. Long term, staff and Trustees are working to design and build a Cabinetmaking Shop on the Common, with plans to open in 2021 as part of the celebration of the Village’s 75th anniversary. If you are interested in learning more about how you can support this exciting initiative contact our Development Office at for more information.

Old Sturbridge Village is grateful to The Americana Foundation and Robert E. Roemer for their generous support of the Cabinetmaking Shop.
