Dive into the story of how The American Optical Company and Old Sturbridge Village were founded. Both were founded by the Wells family of Southbridge, MA with Old Sturbridge Village opening in the 1940's. As a family, the Wells Family made genuine contributions to their country - but never in their own name. Such was their New England reticence.
Old Sturbridge Village is one of the country’s oldest and largest living history museums, celebrating life in early New England from 1790–1840. Visitors interact with costumed historians, experience up-close demonstrations of early American trades, and meet heritage-breed farm animals. Situated on 200 scenic acres, the Village is a collection of more than 40 historic buildings including homes, meetinghouses, trade shops, working farms and three water-powered mills, restaurants, and retail shops.
