Each year, with your help, we build a field of flags by our entrance from Memorial Day through Labor Day in honor of our active-duty military and veterans. These flags serve as tangible reminders of these American heroes’ service and sacrifice, and a physical expression of our gratitude.

Your generous gift to the Field of Flags campaign provides you with an opportunity to honor a loved one who is currently serving or has served in the U.S. Military. The names of the individuals remembered with gifts to the Field of Flags campaign are posted on the digital Honor Board on our website and on physical Honor Boards adjacent to the field.

Gifts to the Field of Flags campaign also support our partnership with Blue Star Museums and provide year-round complimentary admission to Coggeshall Farm Museum and Old Sturbridge Village for military families.

We are proud to partner with you to recognize the active-duty military and veterans in your lives and to welcome military families to the museum free of charge in their honor. Thank you for your support for our nation and for the preservation and enjoyment of its history through Coggeshall Farm Museum.

Many people choose to donate a flag in honor of a loved one. Donor boards will be printed on boards near the field of flags as well as posted online below. This year, we are also giving donors and military families the opportunity to share their stories!
