More About Historic Rhode Island Farms by Robert A. Geake
 
 
 
Overview

Dating back to the colonial era, the historic barns and outbuildings of Rhode Island have withstood the test of time. From the state’s early barnyard taverns to the modern-day horse and dairy farms that populate rural Rhode Island, each of these buildings has a story to tell. In the mid-eighteenth century, the Narragansett planters bred horses on their farms in southern Rhode Island. Later, dairy farms sprang up across the region. Milking barns were built on the largest farms in the state, including the Theinhert Dairy Farm and Barn in Lincoln. Before the advent of electric trolleys, urban barns sheltered horses for early tramcar transportation. Each barn is a beloved reminder of the state’s history. Join author Robert A. Geake as he explores the origins and evolution of Rhode Island’s farms.
