(Weekends only) Visitors to Old Sturbridge Village will be greeted by the sweet smell of wood smoke mixed with maple syrup as historians demonstrate maple sugar making at the Village’s own working “Sugar Camp.” On weekend days in March, see maple sugaring as it was done in early 19th-century rural New England and learn why the final product historically was sugar, not syrup. See demonstrations of the traditional Native American methods, early 19th-century New England, 20th century metal buckets and contemporary tubing. Old Sturbridge Village is the largest outdoor history museum in the northeast and portrays life in a New England village in the 1830s.
