About Us

Come see the way life used to be. Waters Farm; a hilltop homestead built in 1757 by Stephen Waters and now a living history museum listed on the National Register of Historic Places. With a stunning view overlooking Lake Manchaug, barns, outbuildings and 120 acres of pristine farmland, Waters Farm gives visitors a rare glimpse of the 19th century New England farm life at its best.

Waters Farm Preservation Inc was formed to ensure the continued preservation of this historic landmark. The farm is maintained by a corps of dedicated volunteers working in conjunction with the John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor Commission.

Special events are held at the farm each year. Tours are given year-round by appointment. For information about events or to schedule a tour contact us or call 508.865.0101

Our Mission

After the Waters Farm property was acquired Waters Farm Preservation Inc, a non profit organization, was formed to acquire grants and funding and continue the mission of creating a living history and education center as envisioned by Dorothea Waters.
