Giving back and saying “thank you” to relatives, friends, and even strangers for their service and sacrifice is at the heart of Coggeshall Farm Museum’s Field of Flags campaign. We are proud to honor our active duty Military, veterans, and the essential workers on whom our country has relied during the COVID-19 crisis with our Field of Flags.
With your help, we will build a field of flags at Coggeshall Farm Museum. The flags serve as tangible reminders of these American heroes’ service and sacrifice, and a physical expression of our gratitude. Every $25 you donate provides year-round complimentary admission to Coggeshall Farm for military families; this year only, it also provides complimentary admission to essential workers from the time we reopen through Thanksgiving. As one of the oldest history museums in the most patriotic town in America, we want to ensure that our American heroes can enjoy the museum free of charge. You can help by supporting the Field of Flags with a gift today.
Old Sturbridge Village and Coggeshall Farm Museum are embarking on an innovative new partnership this year. Effective January 1, 2020, Old Sturbridge Village will manage the daily operations of Coggeshall Farm through a management contract.
Coggeshall Farm Museum remains committed to interpreting early New England life on a marsh farm in southeastern New England. The partnership of the two museums creates a regional coalition of committed volunteers and staff dedicated to ensuring that living history thrives in New England. It creates the opportunity to take our models to scale – and to think bigger and broader about the role of public history in the everyday lives of our citizens.
Stay tuned for additional updates!
