We had looked forward to visiting this plance and were very disappointed - No one was looking for visitors - we went into one building and it was quite messy, on our way out a young lady stepped out and tried to tell us about the farm. We wandered about for a bit and got a few good pictures. Maybe... More

Alison, thank you for taking the time to visit Prescott Farm and to leave a review. We're sorry you didn't enjoy your experience at the farm. The buildings on the northern part of the site are privately rented to tenant-stewards who care for the homes, restored by the Newport Restoration Foundation. The museum site on the south side is unguided,... More

The last Wednesday of the month, July through September, there is a Windmill Open House that we attended. There was staff giving tours of the windmill, staff making johnnycakes and serving windmill cookies (which my daughter loved), live music, and time to explore the gardens, grounds, and duck pond. The event is free. The staff was very knowledgeable. Seeing the... More

We have been driving by this Farm for years. I finally looked it up and decided on our next drive to Newport, we would stop in. There are a lot of old restored buildings, a windmill from 1812, a small bridge in a wooded area with a little stream under it, kitchen garden, herb gardens and a nice area to... More

This farm is worth a visit, and if the weather allows, a picnic! For a small price you can feed the birds and for free you can enjoy the guinea hens, geese, ducks, and chickens. Also, enjoy the picturesque gardens and historic little buildings (especially the windmill). The staff is friendly and the location is convenient for stopping in when... More

We really liked the history of the farm. While we were there, they were making johnnycakes that everyone could sample plus apple cider, and there was a group playing music that would have been played when the farm was in operation. It was as if we had stepped back in time.

On a busy state road but the minute you turn into Prescott Farm you are transported to another era. This was an important Revolutionary War site, a working farm until the 1950s and now a great place to get close to an historic windmill, a little colonial house and lovely grounds and gardens. The children will enjoy feeding the rambling... More

This is a little known spot in Middletown. It is a great place to bring children. We recently visited and brought our children to feed the ducks. My son also enjoyed seeing a goose walk by. There is no admission and is a great place to take photos.

Beautiful! Love Old Historic Windmills. It was something to show the kids. The grounds are free and open to the public daily dawn to dusk. A must see if you are in the area. See website for history.
