Welcome to
South County

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.
