Last weekend, a friend and I — both Janeites traveled out to Old Sturbridge Village in central Massachusetts.  My friend had never been and the visit, JASNA lecture and tea was her gift to me — a belated birthday outing.  I have taken all the photos here.


Once I visited this “living history museum” back in grade school, so my memory of it is faint — people making candles and churning butter and it is a lot larger than I remember. Below is the lovely herb garden.


This was the back entrance to the gift shop near the buildings/conference center where we had the JASNA lecture and tea.

The road out to the mills and the blacksmith’s shop.
