“explore the coastal legacy”

Come to the South County Museum, where Rhode Island’s coastal legacy has been celebrated for 80 years. Here you can explore  the rich historical heritage of rural and coastal life. Our beautiful seven-acre campus is set in a 174-acre town park that was the 19th-century  estate of Rhode Island’s Civil War-era governor and postwar senator, William Sprague. Explore history in the one-room schoolhouse, carriage barn and print shop. Watch artisans at work in the blacksmith shop and print shop. Wander through the Canonchet Estate stable ruins, visit the Rhode Island Red heritage flock and our other farm animals. Our grounds feature heirloom flower and herb gardens, and we are bounded by woods, meadows and salt marshes accessible on marked walking trails. There have been reports of people seeing ghosts here, as well as seeing objects move on their own.

This museum is a gem! It's like a mini Sturbridge Village with lots of Souther Rhode Island history. The grounds are tranquil and lovely. Next time I visit I'm bringing a picnic lunch. It's within walking distant to the ocean.
