|Old Sturbridge Village|
Sturbridge Village, a nonprofit educational institution that first opened in 1946, is a history museum and learning resource that invites all visitors to find meaning, pleasure, relevance, and
inspiration in the exploration of New England's past. The centerpiece of the museum is a re-created rural New England town of the 1830s set on more than 200 acres of historical landscape,
encompassing a Center Village, Mills Area, and Countryside.
Old Sturbridge Village is proud to hold one of the nation's most extensive collections of early New England quilts, with over 250 pieces dating from the late 1700s to the mid-1800s. The Village's portrayal of the past is grounded in award-winning historical research that includes archaeology, analysis of early 19th-century objects and buildings, and painstaking study of letters, diaries, account books and other documents.
