Old Sturbridge Village

Want to visit the New England of the early 1800s? Then spend a day at "OSV" and talk to people living and working as though time had stopped then. More...

Wells State Park

Besides the obvious headline attraction in Sturbridge, you might want to have a picnic in Wells State Park, a few miles north of Sturbridge (follow US 20 east, then Route 49 north and follow the signs). Swimming and camping are available here as well. More...

Charlton Orchards Farm & Winery

A historic New England farm (1733) producing farm-fresh, naturally-raised beef, eggs and vegetables, it also has a bakery (home-made pies) and a winery producing vintages from the farm's own apples, plums and berries. More...

Brimfield Antique Show

Don't miss the chance to pore over junk and treasures at the Brimfield Antique Show, in nearby Brimfield (seven miles west of Sturbridge along US 20; map). More...

Up to 2000 antique dealers fill several fields near Brimfield in mid-May, with similar fairs in early or mid-July and mid-September.

If Brimfield is not in session, you can still do some browsing in the many antique shops on US 20 between Sturbridge and Brimfield.

St Anne Shrine

Those interested in Russian icons will want to stop at the St Anne Shrine, 16 Church St., Fiskdale MA 01518 (map)(tel 508-347-7338).

The icons were collected by Msgr. Pie Neveu, an Assumptionist bishop who served in Russia from 1906 to 1936, and by other Assumptionist fathers who served as chaplains at the US Embassy between 1934 and 1941. The collection of 60 treasured icons is rare, as they can no longer be exported from Russia.

To get to the shrine, go one mile west from Old Sturbridge Village along US 20. Drive through Fiskdale (a part of Sturbridge) and watch for a sign on the right. Just before the junction with Route 148, turn right on Church Street up the steep hill. More...
