Old Sturbridge Village Parsonage

Old Sturbridge Village Parsonage

The Parsonage is an exibit at Old Sturbridge Village, a living history museum in Sturbridge, MA. The Building was built in East Brookfield, MA. in 1748 and was moved to OSV in 1940. Parsonages were not provided rent-free by local churches, and ministers’ families had to buy or rent. A house like this would have cost somewhere around $600 to $800 or rented at the rate of about $50 to $80 a year. Lest this seem outlandishly cheap, we should remember that country ministers’ salaries averaged under $500—payable at the end of the yearly contract. The exibit is set up as a recreation of what a country minister's home would have looked like in the 1830's along with a study to write sermons in and many of the rooms being open for church members to visit. #MA
