Old Red Farm history goes back to the beginnings of the town of Wareham,
Mass. In 1756, Joshua Gibbs Jr. and his brother John Gibbs bought the
nine acre lot in the Agawam Great Neck from one of the original settlers,
For some reason the
records show that only the successors of Joshua Gibbs as owners of the
farmland. His son Abraham Gibbs' daughter Mercy married Bradford Lincoln.
Mercy Gibbs Lincoln and her brother Andrew had possession until 1903
when James OShaunessey bought it and used it as a summer retreat.
Robert Herrick purchased the farm in 1928. Having left all the property
to Massachusetts General Hospital in his will, the hospital split the
land up in order to sell it. The main house and surrounding piece was
bought by the Sacred Hearts Seminary. The farm section was bought by
the Jacoby family. The farm then went to Richard Bowler and stayed in
the Bowler family until the 1980's when Dennis Coppola and Kenneth Murphy
It stayed as a working farm until
Mr. Coppola and Mr. Murphy turned it into a bed and breakfast. We, the
Watson family are keeping it as an Inn. Please come and stay with us
for a beautiful and peaceful vacation.
This peaceful retreat is also the ultimate location for your
next important event. Our pavillion on the property can accommodate parties
of 250 or less. Open May 15 - October 15
