Old Sturbridge Village

Old Sturbridge Village (OSV) is about an hour from here and is a "living history museum" with buildings from the 1790-1840 time frame, people in period dressing doing the work of the time, and animals and history lessons, of course.  We have been wanting to go there and it just happens that this past Friday was the summer "free Friday fun" day.  So, we packed up and headed out early in the morning.  Good thing, too, the parking was full when we left (they were parking in an open field).  We had a great time and look forward to going again next year on free Friday.

They were actually blacksmithing (if that is the correct term?) here.  It was cool that the people actually were doing the jobs of that time.
