Battle of Chase Farm: Revolutionary War Reenactment Weekend

Posted by HearthsideHouse

Step back in time to the 18th century during this large scale reenactment event when the tranquil landscape of Lincoln’s Chase Farm Park will undergo a dramatic change as hundreds of troops of Redcoats and Rebels fill the fields with musket fire as they reenact the history that led to the birth of our country.

Battle scenarios each day, encampment of nearly 500 reenactors, 18c. living history presentations, tours at adjoining historic sites including blacksmith shop, one-room schoolhouse, a rare relic of a mill from the early Industrial Age, and the Hearthside Museum, a 200 year old mansion. Among the exhibits at the Museum will be a virtual reality presentation on the Gaspee Affair and a display of weaponry of the time period. Docents in Colonial attire to host tours at the museum.

Parking on site at Chase Farm, with shuttle transportation to the adjoining sites. Admission paid at the gate, cash preferred. General Admission is $12; $10 seniors age 65+, $8 students 12-17, 11 and under $5; under 5 free.

Located just 10 minutes north of Providence off Route 146 at the Rt. 123E exit, one mile from the exit at 671 Great Road.
