Old Sturbridge Village is a living, breathing, vibrant village depicting life in New England from 1790-1840. Meet historians in costume and tour 40 antique buildings, including a country store, school, and water-powered mills. Ride the stagecoach, learn to plow, make crafts, dip candles, and help the printer, potter and blacksmith at work. And at our 19th-century Freeman Farm, watch historians demonstrate farm work through the seasons: planting, harvesting, milking cows, churning butter, and cooking over the hearth. Don't forget to meet our heritage breed sheep, oxen, chickens and pigs!
