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.
