Now as an adult with grown children I decided it was time to go again. This time in a different capacity as an author and business owner taking pictures for The LOOK Book, Old Sturbridge Village. This time however, I drove my own car, paid for my own ticket and walked about at my own leisure! I was surprised at how my memory of OSV had LOOKed in my mind. The question I have is ....has it changed extensively OR do I just not remember??? I am not sure I will ever really know…but either way I could tell they have done a great deal to enhance the visitor experience.
The collections are extensive and quite interesting, we only planned a few hours to enjoy OSV. I wanted to get a feel for what was important and interesting to children, I will need to go back to really enjoy everything.
As we wandered about we heard a gun fire and saw smoke and a crowd of people watching something...we headed over and found a marks man taking target practice. Take a LOOK at the video below. Clearly these men are enjoying their day and entertaining the visitors with history and jokes:)
