Description: For many at Old Sturbridge Village, the first whiff of spring isnt the aroma of spring flowers  its the smell of wood smoke and maple syrup, a sure sign that the sap is rising and spring is on the way. Join us for four weekends of Maple Days in March, when the Villages working sugar camp demonstrates maple sugaring as it was done in early 19th-century New England.

See the entire sugar-making process, from tapping the trees to sugaring off, and learn why maple sugar was more commonly used than maple syrup in early New England.

Costumed historians will also cook period foods made with maple products and the potter and cooper will make maple related items.
