We are in Boston visiting Josh's family this weekend and yesterday we visited Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, MA. Sturbridge Village is a living history museum set on more than 200 acres of land, where folks in period garb make like it's the 1830s. Lots of butter churning, apple cider making, book binding by hand, blacksmithing, sawing wood with water powered blades, and the like. I am a sucker for anything old timey, so this place was right up my alley. I understand it's not of interest to everyone, so I won't be offended if you click this window closed right now.
Almost all of the buildings are original to the period, and many of them were painstakingly moved from various locations around Massachusetts to make up the little town. The stone blacksmith shop was of particular interest, as it was completely disassembled, stone by stone, then rebuilt at the village.
And now without further ado, let's step back to 1830...
Todd Farm and then will stay in Boston for a few days to thrift and take care of a few errands. I'll be back tomorrow with photos from Todd Farm. Until then!
