Description

Once a private drive through the massive estate of industrialist Samuel P. Colt, nephew of the Samuel Colt of firearms fame, this road was known as "Colt Drive." The drive originally was lined with many bronze statues, including one of a dog looking out to sea for his lost master. Most of the statues are gone or moved except for the two bulls at the entrance. A sign at the entrance read: "Colt Farm, Private Property, Public Welcome."

The state of RI acquired the land and it was turned into a state park. The 400 acre park is a meticulously groomed collection of picnic grounds, bicycle paths and walking paths. The stone bridge on the left was built by local masons, some of whom were related to my wife's family.

The statue of Sen. and Governor John H. Chafee can be seen as the man walking on the horizon. He was instrumental in creation of this land as a state park.
