The largest outdoor history museum in the Northeast, Old Sturbridge Village portrays the daily life of a rural New England town from 1790 to 1840, with 40 original buildings allowing visitors to get an authentic look at post-colonial America. Bulk up your historical knowledge by roaming into the village's sawmill, law office, district school, and more, while demanding answers about the absence of a historical used horse-and-buggy dealership. Inquirers can listen to the historical interpreters that make the town bustle each day, from the rugged blacksmith to the farmer cultivating the fields. Along with admission to the past, there is a stagecoach ride and riverboat ride. Check the Old Sturbridge Village WEBSITE: http://www.osv.org/
There are some pretty cool-looking crafting classes that people might be interested in taking. Feel free to sign up and enjoy!
There are several restaurants, such as the early New England cuisine at the Oliver Wight Tavern, and picnic tables are also set up for those who prefer to nibble on homemade sandwiches.
NOTES: Only pouring rain will cancel this event. Cost is $20 unless you bought the recent Groupon. Sturbridge Village is open 9:30 am-5 pm. Sturbridge Village is 59 miles from Boston; if you don't have a car it's probably best that you don't sign up, unless you make your own transportation arrangements. (It looks like Laura cancelled her event that was scheduled for Sept. 18 because no one signed up; I was unable to attend that date so I am scheduling this for Labor Day Weekend for those of us who aren't traveling that weekend.)
