Tyska Animal Barn
By interpreting life on a 1790s salt-marsh tenant farm, Coggeshall Farm Museum serves the local community as a living history museum and vital educational resource. Historically, a barn was vital to the family, neighbors, and community who relied on the food the farm provided. The 2021 completion of the Tyska Barn at Coggeshall Farm Museum represents a commitment to our Rhode Island community through an invigorated farm operation, dynamic school and family programs, and enhanced experiences for our members and visitors. The new Barn leverages the possibilities of Coggeshall’s dynamic and evolving partnership with Old Sturbridge Village and serves as the centerpiece of the Farm’s agricultural and educational programs.
