Giving back and saying “thank you” to relatives, friends, and even strangers for their service and sacrifice is at the heart of Old Sturbridge Village’s Field of Flags campaign.

This year, we are proud to extend the Field of Flags to honor our active duty Military, veterans, and the essential workers on whom our country has relied during the COVID-19 crisis.

With your help, we will build two fields of flags: one on Route 20 across from Old Sturbridge Village’s entrance and another at Coggeshall Farm Museum. The flags serve as tangible reminders of these American heroes’ service and sacrifice, and a physical expression of our gratitude. Every $25 you donate provides year-round complimentary admission to the Village and Coggeshall Farm for military families; this year only, it also provides complimentary admission to essential workers from the time we reopen through Thanksgiving.

Many people choose to donate a flag in honor of a loved one. Donor boards will be digital this year so that all can read them. We will be updating weekly.

Old Sturbridge Village Honor Board:

All essential workers, especially doctors, nurses, and nurse’s aides
All essential workers: thank you for your continued service and dedication on behalf of us all!
