Casey Farm

Saunderstown, R.I. – Historic New England secured a $10,000 grant from The 1772 Foundation for exterior repairs and painting of the circa 1750 farmhouse at Casey Farm.

The grant supports Historic New England’s goal to create a Southern Rhode Island regional center at Casey Farm to better sustain the growing number of programs and community partnerships at the historic site. The funds will be used to repair window sills, clapboards, a wooden drain, two doors, and the pilasters on the front door. The entire building will also be painted.

Casey Farm has been an active farm since the mid-eighteenth century. The work funded by the grant will help ensure the building’s preservation so that future generations will be able to enjoy this historic site. Work will be completed this summer and fall.
