Women's History Weekend at Old Sturbridge Village
Old Sturbridge Village Garden
Join Old Sturbridge Village as we acknowledge and celebrate extraordinary and everyday women in the early 19th century.
Visit the historic houses of Old Sturbridge Village to learn about how women ran their households, managing the essential work of clothes construction, cooking, laundry, and more. Join interpreters in the gardens for talks on Indigenous plants, medicine, and discussions on the roles of women and children in gardening. Beyond the domestic sphere, we will explore issues surrounding gender, freedom, and rights occurring during the 1830s through readings of first-person accounts of the 19th century.
Standard daytime admission is $28 for adults, $26 for seniors (55+), $14 for youth (4-17), $14 for college students (with a valid college ID), and free for children 3 and under.

Old Sturbridge Village is an outdoor museum with unpaved roads that lead to houses, farms, shops, mills, and gardens typical of 19th-century rural New England. While more than half of the Village’s historic buildings have wheelchair-accessible entrances, interior access varies. The Village’s unpaved roads are generally firm and stable. Most roads are level, with steeper grades located near the Bullard Tavern, Glass Exhibit, and Herb Garden. Longer, more gradual grades are located near the Visitor Center and Freeman Farmhouse.
The downloadable Museum Accessibility Guide provides details concerning physical access to the Village and its programs. For more information on museum accessibility, contact the Visitor Center at 508-347-0290 or email us.View less
