Franklin Farm

Franklin Farm, in Cumberland, RI, is a town-owned historic farm. Recently added to the National Register of Historic Places, Franklin Farm encompasses over 65 acres of land and includes a mid-19th century Greek Revival-style farmhouse; an early-19th century timber-framed barn; a ca. 1903 dairy barn; and a 20th-century garage. Used for many years as a dairy farm, the land and buildings now belong to the public, under the direction of the Historic Metcalf-Franklin Farm Preservation Association. Many town programs are run on the site, and the farm is home to a community garden and farm stand.
