Sturbridge is a vibrant town located at the crossroads of New England. Long before the first English settlers came to Massachusetts, the Native Americans called this place Tantiousques and knew it well as the place where the Bay Path and the Connecticut Path met. Today these early thoroughfares have been replaced by the Massachusetts Turnpike, Routes 20 and 131 and Interstate 84, and many travelers still pass through our town each day.
Since 1946 Sturbridge has been well known as the home of Old Sturbridge Village, and tourism has become an important part of our economy. Excellent restaurants including the historic Publick House, which has been the focal point of the Sturbridge Common since 1771, numerous antiques and craft shops and many comfortable motels, inns and bed and breakfasts await our visitors.
While the old textiles mills are gone, many new industries have come to Sturbridge in the past fifty years, which helps to keep our tax rate stable while providing employment opportunities for our residents. Sturbridge businesses play leadership roles in fiber optics, laser technology, environmental products, plastics, machining and metal fabrication.
