Make No Little Plans
"Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood... Make big plans; aim high in hope and work..."
-- Daniel Hudson Burnham, Chicago Architect on his advice to A. B. Wells on creating Old Sturbridge Village
Exploring the founding of Old Sturbridge Village began last year with the exhibit, Kindred Spirits. Continuing with that theme, the Village is proud to announce our new exhibit called Make No Little Plans. This exhibit celebrates the 70th anniversary of the opening of Old Sturbridge Village on June 8, 1946. The exhibit examines the roles played by key members of the Wells family and select associates. Principal characters include Albert B., J. Cheney, George B., and Ruth D. Wells, along with George Watson, the man behind moving the first buildings to the Village, and antiquarian Nina Fletcher Little, hired by Cheney Wells to coordinate decoration of the Towne house. Early curators Malcolm Watkins and Frank Spinney will also receive some mention. Reserving a broader retrospective of the museums history for its 75th anniversary in 2021, this exhibit will focus on the initial assembly of the Village and its first decade of operation.
