Old Sturbridge Village

Welcome to Old Sturbridge Village, a recreated 1830s rural New England town! Explore our 200+ acres and 40 historical buildings, chat with costumed historians as they work the tasks of the past, and be inspired by the stories of early 19th-century rural New England life.

As the largest living history museum in New England, Old Sturbridge Village brings history to life through costumed historians, preserved buildings, a working farm and mills, amazing objects in our vast collections and incredible stories from life in the early 19th century.
