One of the best parts about New England is that history is all around us. Coggeshall Farm brings that history to life. “Coggeshall tells the story of everyday Rhode Islanders who built this country from the ground up when it was brand new,” says Executive Director Cindy Elder. At the living history museum, historians dressed in 18th-century clothing engage visitors in the seasonal activities of this working farm. As Cindy says, “I love working with an outstanding staff of educators, the joy of children learning in a hands-on environment and the delight of being greeted at my office door by turkeys, chickens and sheep.”
