Geocache Description:

This simple puzzle cache is designed to educate you on Coggeshall Farm, a multi-acre parcel of land located within the boundaries of Colt State Park that has historical significance to the town of Bristol.


N 41° 40.[A-4][B-8]C W 071° 17.[D-3]EF


The eighteenth century coastal tenant farm is located on 4D acres of land in Bristol and features interpreters and authentic reenactments of farm life in the year 179B.

In the early nineteenth-century Wilbur and Eliza Coggeshall were tenant farmers at the farm. The Coggeshall's son, Chandler Coggeshall, later became a politician and helped to found what it now the University of Rhode Island in 188E.

In 196F the State of Rhode Island purchased the Colt Estate for use as a state park, and the Bristol Historical Society petitioned the State for permission to preserve the farm house on the property as a museum.

In 196A the Bristol Historical Society signed a lease and constructed various outbuildings.

Coggeshall Farm Museum was established in 19C3 to educate modern Americans about eighteenth century New England farm life.
