The Sturbridge Host Hotel and Conference Center is under significant transition, for which all exhibitors who participated in last year, were notified in detail. 

We have the Sturbridge Police Department for our Security detail 24/7, as usual. We are proud to support the local Police Department and all their valuable assistance over the years. 

The club focuses on history and sharing it with interested individuals.  It is the goal and hope that the NEAAS efforts will breathe some life back into the collecting market and recreate the interest in collecting Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War I, World War II items and other areas of military interest once again.

It is the typical way of doing business in any state.
