Development of a new interpretive plan and educational materials for Old Sturbridge Village to mark the site’s seventy-fifth anniversary in 2021.

Old Sturbridge Village respectfully requests a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support the development of a new Interpretation and Education Plan. Old Sturbridge Village, located in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, is one of the nation’s oldest living history museums and has depicted 19th century rural New England life through costumed interpreters, historic homes, curatorial exhibitions, and educational offerings to an audience of more than 21 million visitors since opening in 1946. The Village’s training and resource materials have not been comprehensively reviewed or significantly revised since the 1970s. Throughout this project the Village will work with scholars, consultants, and partnering institutions to develop a new Interpretation and Education Plan that creates impactful visitor experiences, connects with a modern audience, and better reflects the diversity of our community both past and present.
