Come to the South County Museum, where Rhode Island’s coastal legacy has been celebrated since 1933. Here
you can explore a rich heritage of rural and coastal life. Our beautiful seven-acre campus is 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 carpentry 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 they are
bounded by woods, meadows, and salt marshes accessible on marked walking trails.
