    A woman farms in her period dress, you can walk through a covered bridge on your way to the saw mill, you can rest on a bench beside the pond and enjoy the ducks, or any number of quiet and peaceful moments to be enjoyed in Sturbridge.
    There is a sweet sundial in the herb garden, and a precious little building at the end of the tour before descending through the garden to the gift shop.

    It's a puzzle....

    Lombard and I spent some time trying to figure out what the museum folks were doing with one of the houses which is currently being rehabbed. They have raised pannelling and paint jobs which are off center with fireplaces and odd color combinations which don't make sense with the architectural features of the house. Look closely at the pics here and you will see our confusion. The only thing we could conclude was that they are showing one era in brown and another era after alterations ... in blue... or red. Next visit to Sturbridge they will be finished with their project and have guides to explain it or written descriptions. Haven't seen this sort of presentation before. Any other theories?
