Archaeologists from the University of Rhode Island and Gray and Pape, Inc. will be on hand to discuss the history and archaeology of historic Amos Greene Farm during the Charlestown Historical Society’s grand Revolutionary War Encampment event. Located on beautiful rolling hills just west of Rt. 112, this family farmstead was active throughout the American Revolutionary War and beyond. The rural coastal area that is now Charlestown is rich with Native American culture, colonial trading histories, agricultural and manufacturing diversity, and early American conflict in a burgeoning republic. Archaeologists will display artifacts, explore the Greene family tree, and assess the farm’s varied landscape, stone walls, and structures while groups of colonial reenactors and period vendors portray life as it was 240 years ago. $5 donation suggested.
Parking will be at the Charlestown Elementary School and there will be a two-minute shuttle bus to take visitors to the farm
