Q43 - Member Connections -- Intertwined Histories: Manning and Marge Goldense and OSV

Old Sturbridge Village Visitor, Old Sturbridge Village, One Old Village Road, Sturbridge, MA
Summer 2012

This article is not business-related. It is about the parents of Brad Goldense, their passion for making braided rugs, and their 57-Year Membership at Old Sturbridge Village [OSV]. When they passed, OSV wanted to do a tribute to the longevity of their relationship with the Village. OSV is an "authentic colonial working village" set in the period 1790-1840. It is located in central Massachusetts. The OSV Visitor Magazine is published on a quarterly basis by Old Sturbridge Village.

Old Sturbridge Village traces its beginnings to the remarkable collection amassed by industrialists Albert B. and J. Cheney Wells of neighboring Southbridge. The Wells family brought together a wealth of early New England artifacts, including tools, utensils, furniture, glassware, and clocks. The family later dedicated itself to the idea of displaying the collections within a working village, where visitors could better understand how the items were originally crafted and used.Old Sturbridge Village first opened to the public on June 8, 1946. In the more than 60 years since, more than 21 million adults and children have visited the Village, and the museum has attained international recognition for its innovations in research and education.
