Coastal Farming Walking Tour

Tour Cogswell's Grant Coastal Farm in Essex Massachusetts

This Historic New England walking tour explores Cogswell's Grant as a working farm since 1636 to present. Although the last owners, Bertram and Nina Fletcher Little, used the property as a summer home and filled the farmhouse with their collection of antiques, the farm was an important part of their life and they benefited year-round from its produce. Walk through fields and down to the marsh, discover the rich history of the families that lived and farmed here, and learn how coastal farming has evolved over the centuries.
