Presented by Old Sturbridge Village at Old Sturbridge Village, Sturbridge MA

Jun 11 - 12 2022
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.
