Each year, with your help, we build a field of flags outside the Visitor Center from Memorial Day through Labor Day in honor of our active-duty military and veterans. These flags serve as tangible reminders of these American heroes’ service and sacrifice, and a physical expression of our gratitude.

Your generous gift to the Field of Flags campaign provides you with an opportunity to honor a loved one who is currently serving or has served in the U.S. Military. The names of the individuals remembered with gifts to the Field of Flags campaign are posted on the digital Honor Board on our website and on physical Honor Boards outside the Visitor Center.

In addition to planting a flag, you also have the opportunity to hang a red, white, or blue star bearing your loved one’s name from our covered bridge in November as part of Veterans and Military Families Month. It is our privilege to join you in saying “thank you” to these brave men and women for their service.

Your gift makes a difference!

Not only does your donation give military families the opportunity to enjoy a fun and educational day at the Village free of charge, it may also inspire a love for history!

Lanette’s husband served in the Navy and her family visited the Village whenever they were “home.” She said that her daughters, Abigail and Joanna, have many fond memories from these visits, like riding the horse-drawn wagon, discovering the sensitive plant in the Fitch Garden, and enjoying our famous cookies. Inspired by those visits, Joanna became a junior intern at the Village during high school.

We are proud to partner with you and to recognize the active-duty military and veterans in your lives and to welcome military families to the museum free of charge in their honor. Thank you for your support for our nation and for the preservation and enjoyment of its history through Old Sturbridge Village.

Share Your Military Story

Tell us more about the loved one(s) you are honoring with your donation! Or, if you are a member of the military or in a military family, share your favorite memory about visiting the Village.

Learn More & Share

Many people choose to donate a flag in honor of a loved one. Donor boards will be printed on boards near the field of flags as well as posted online below. The online honor board is updated once each week. The printed boards are updated once each month.
