Visit with Joetta Kirk of Chace Farm

Sowams Heritage Area Team Member David Weed recently met with Joetta Kirk, owner of Chace Farm in Warren, RI. The farm dates back to 1697 when King George granted a charter and has only had three family owners. The farm’s 178 acres includes the site of Wigwam Hill (pictured behind Dave and Joetta), an historic aboriginal winter village, and a 400 year old white oak tree on the edge of the property on Birch Swamp Road. It is also near Margaret’s Rock and King’s Rock, two other sites of historic significance from the 17th century.
