We were in Sturbridge to visit Old Sturbridge Village which is just west of the town. But we had some time to spend riding through Sturbridge itself.
There are lots of farm land and farm markets. The town achitecture is early 20th century, rustic is probably the best adjective. There were flower venders and a garden show, yard sales and some large modern homes.

We took mostly slide-film so i had to supplement stock pictures for the things we saw in the VT tips.
