8/11/2001 • American History Reviews, Reviews

OLD STURBRIDGE VILLAGE, by Kent McCallum, with photographs by Thomas Neill (Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 224 pages, $45.00).
Through almost 200 illustrations, including 84 in color, this attractive book, the first written about Old Sturbridge Village (OSV), offers a glimpse of life in a rural New England community during the early nineteenth century. Situated in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, OSV is a noted outdoor museum whose buildings, furnishings, gardens, and craft demonstrations skillfully recreate for visitors many aspects of life in an 1830s working community.
