Coggeshall Farm Museum is a living historical farm set on 48 acres in Bristol, Rhode Island. The museum depicts Bristol's agrarian life in the year 1799 through live interpretation, historic structures, and heirloom plants and animals.
Interpreters dressed in accurate reproduction clothing carry out the same tasks practiced on Rhode Island's coastal tenant farms during the Federal Period. As the weather and seasons change, so too does the work, following a continuous cycle of birth, raising, and eventual harvest in the years leading up to the Industrial Revolution; on the cusp of major social and technological change that would usher in new ways of understanding agriculture and the world.
