Watson Farm open free on June 1

Watson Farm will be one of four historic sites open to the public on Saturday, June 1, as part of a His­toric New England event.

From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., all four Historic New England historic properties in Rhode Island are open for free tours and more.

Enjoy a taste of Rhode Island history by visiting a 17th cen­tury stone-ender, flying a kite at a coastal farm, shopping at an or­ganic farmer’s market, and explor­ing walking trails to the Narragan­sett Bay. At Watson Farm, fly a kite or follow the self-guided tour of the farm trails. Kite flying starts at 1 p.m. so grab a kite, bring a pic­nic, and enjoy breathtaking views of Narragansett Bay. This program is in partnership with Rhody Ram­ble. Visit RhodyRamble.org for more information on other family- friendly events and programs.
