Today we went to Old Sturbridge Village. The village represents a rural New England town in the 1830's. On the property are homes, meetinghouses, a district school, country store, bank, law office, printing office, carding mill, sawmill, gristmill, pottery, blacksmith shop, shoe shop, and cooper shop. Authentically costumed staff are found through out the property.
