Saunderstown, RI
(range: 1 mile)
Located near Newport, Casey Farm had access to goods imported from England, enabling its early owners to live fashionably. The region’s economy was tied to the slave trade, and this plantation was one of several in the region supplying plantations in the South and the West Indies. By 1755, one out of every three Rhode Island residents was enslaved, most of them in the South County region where Casey Farm is located. Starting in the mid-nineteenth century, the Casey family leased the property to tenant farmers but retained two rooms in the house for their own occasional summer use. (This excerpt taken from the Casey Farm website)
