Our History, Our Beauty ... and You

Welcome to our first e-newsletter, one that we trust will encourage you to immerse yourself in our beautiful Farm, become absorbed in our colonial history and just plain have fun.

Our mission is straightforward and we want you to be part of it … to steward our land while cultivating appreciation of our agrarian, Native American and colonial history.

We invite you to walk with us.
The Barn at Mount Hope Farm
Did you know that George Washington slept here in our Governor William Bradford House, our handsome mansion built in the 18th century?

Did you know our large Victorian barn, built in 1860, is where we stage events and a winter Farmers Market?
And the Farm is home to several 20th century buildings, including our rustic Cove Cabin, set at the edge of Church Cove.

This is just a fraction of what you will appreciate when you walk with us.

Which tree is your favorite? Which path? Which building? Which animal? Which view?

We’re not asking you to vote. We’re asking you to pick them all. 

We take pride in contributing to the beauty of things by making our environment more beautiful, more appreciated. We have further enhanced a bucolic setting that enriches not only a physical, but also a moral beauty; one that will help you appreciate the gem that is nearby and will become a part of you. Splendor will do that.

So, come along. Walk with us from our rich past to our present-day beauty and our exciting future.

And we invite you to email our Mount Hope Farm Moments e-newsletter to tell us about your favorite parts of the Farm.
We Love Volunteers
These volunteers from Roger Williams University helped us plant trees last fall. Whether you'd like to share your green thumb, care for our animals or settle in to help in our office, we need your skills. Contact Sheri St. Germain, our executive director, to learn more.
