Prescott Farm

Share this Page

Prescott Farm is a historic preservation of a colonial farm. In 1973 the Newport Restoration Foundation bought the property and began restoration of the historical site. Visitors can see an operational windmill (c. 1812),  British General Prescott’s Guard House, a county store (c. 1715), and a University of Rhode Island Master Gardener project with the purpose of simulating a historical vegetable garden through careful research on what crops were grown during that time period. The farm itself is typical of the farms on Aquidneck Island.

A Red Barn style- farm house sits on a pleasant patch of green yard, with narrow, coastal shrubbery in front of it.
