"It wasn't the reward that mattered or the recognition you might harvest. It was your depth of commitment, your quality of service, the product of your devotion -- these were the things that counted in a life. When you gave purely, the honor came in the giving, and that was honor enough."

Old Sturbridge Village
« on: 2011-12-07, 21:56:19 »
I visited this place once as a kid...my grandparents took my brother and I for a weekend; Chuck's thread on places to visit on this side of the pond brought back some good memories of that place.  If you have any interest in late 18th - early 19th century village life as it was lived in Massachusetts, this is a great place to go...and bring your kids if you have them, they'll enjoy it too!  Unless they are lost in the technological wilderness we call life nowadays...then maybe you can break them out of it here.
