South County Museum

SCM is located in a 174-acre town park that was the 19th-century estate of Rhode Island's Civil War-era governor and post-war senator, William Sprague. In addition to the office building, the caretaker's cottage (a private home and not an exhibit) and outbuildings for animals, the campus features seven exhibit buildings or areas: The Metz Hall, the main exhibit hall,a print shop, a carpentry shop, a blacksmith shop, and early transportation exhibit, a textile arts center, a living history farm exhibit, and traveling artifacts.

We hope you enjoy our work.
