“Greene Deserves Much More”

Nathanael Greene Homestead
Ranked #1 of 12 things to do in Coventry
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Nathanael Greene, the general and the person, deserves a much higher level of recognition than he receives. While recognizing that this is a very old "historic" home, sadly both the state of RI and town of Coventry fail to provide visitors with a worthwhile experience. Without a reliable GPS, finding the home is difficult, it sits in a residential neighborhood and signage is poor. Greene gave SO much to the cause, it's too bad the citizens haven't returned the favor.

We dropped in on a Sunday afternoon, and although they weren't prepared for visitors, they opened up and gave us a full tour. It appears that they are still working on restoration and developing the tour, but they tell a great story! It was well worth the time and the $5 entry fee. Make sure you stop in and learn about this great American patriot!

Nathaniel Greene was a true patriot and was a good friend of George Washington. Little known fact. When Gen.Geene passed away George Washington adopted his son and his name was George Washington Greene.
He Gen.Greene was the most trusted of G.W. Generals during the war. He died poor but his home is in Coventry and is open on certain days to be toured. Great History in our own back yard. How neat. Do not have you or your children miss this as he is in the History books they will read in school.

Nathanael Greene was the second greatest general in the Revolutionary War -- outdone only by George Washington . His house in Coventry, RI is a very old home, but there is nothing fancy or formal about it . The directions to get to the house would send you across a bridge that had been damaged in spring floods, but it has been restored and reopened in the summer of 2012. The house is a rather layback type location. Nothing spectacular - and only costs $5 to tour it. You'll also want to make sure you call before going there to assure that they will be open .
They do offer tours. Not a high quality museum - just an old antique home - tour guides are educated.

This seems to be a lost part of Rhode Island history. Not too much is made of this historic interesting site that sits right under our nose in Coventry, Rhode Island. Its worth the trip.
