Welcome to the South County Museum

Come to the South County Museum, where Rhode Island’s coastal legacy has been celebrated for 80-plus 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.
