Old Red Farm
    The 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, Ebenezer Bourne.

    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.


Old Red Farm    Mr. 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 purchased it.

    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.
