|Phillips Farm is an historic and environmental treasure, located in Glocester, Rhode Island, and one of
eight special sites
preserved as open space by the Glocester Land Trust and RI Department of
Environmental Management. Phillips Farm encompasses diverse habitats on
its approximately 68 compact acres, including open fields, trails, forest and
wetlands. Most of the trees are second growth, but many have reached full
maturity. There is also an extensive stand of American beech and the
wetlands support a diverse variety of ferns and flowering plants which
keep blossoms from early Spring through the summer.
This site offers a lovely walk and the site is open from dawn
to dusk daily. This site was purchased with the help of Miss Elizabeth M.
Phillips, the citizens of Glocester and the RI DEM. It is a significant property
along Putnam Pike in Harmony, Rhode Island.
Chepachet, another Village in
Glocester offers tremendous history, too.
There are eight sites within the Town of Glocester which have been
preserved as open space to be administered by the Glocester Land Trust
in cooperation with the Rhode Island Department of Environmental
Management (DEM)." This and more info can be found at:
