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.
This was a country lawyer’s office on the village green — unusual because most worked out of their homes.
The road out to the mills and the blacksmith’s shop.
And a view of the covered bridge.
