Tucked off to the side of busy Rte. 114, Prescott Farm is a small, historical property that includes a wind grist mill built in 1812, a kitchen garden, and several houses. We visited on an early winter day, surprised to find some things still growing green in the garden. Currently owned and managed by the Newport Restoration Foundation, it was a site of significance in the Revolutionary War as the location of a daring and successful raid by the Colonists. The property is small but features many beautiful natural spaces including herb and vegetable gardens, large grassy lawns, a small stream, walking trails, and a duck pond. It is a perfect place for a picnic and a stroll with someone you love. Read more about Prescott Farm here.
