Coggeshall Farm Museum is CLOSED for the season.

UPDATE: November 22, 2020

Dear Visitor,

We have recently announced the final weekend of programming at Coggeshall Farm Museum for this calendar year.  Although we were hoping to run a Christmas program in December, the escalation of COVID-19 has changed those plans. For the safety and well-being of our staff and visitors, we brought the season to a close.

Although none of us could have predicted a pandemic, the partnership with Coggeshall Farm Museum and Old Sturbridge Village had a successful first chapter in 2020.  We hired a great staff that was able to orchestrate a successful reopening in July. We were able to bring costumed interpretation to the daily experience along with the return of animals, thanks to our partnership with Gnarly Vines Farm.  We held two unique and successful special events, including the sold-out Phantoms & Fire theatrical event for Halloween.  Construction of the new barn proceeded, along with grant-funded improvements to the Historic Farmhouse.  Interpretive signage was installed and fencing for the pasture is underway.  Support from the Friends of Rogers Free Library, the Bristol Garden Club, Town of Bristol and others helped make this challenging year fruitful. The development team increased fund raising and secured several new gifts and grants throughout the year, which will continue to grow our program and capabilities.

We look forward to bringing Coggeshall Farm Museum back to life with exciting new programs in early spring. In the meantime, we hope you will stay engaged through our Facebook, Instagram, website and e-news. We are grateful to all of you for helping keep Coggeshall Farm Museum such a special place. Stay safe, be well and Happy Holidays from all of us to you!
