Poppasquash Farms Historic District is a historic district in Bristol, Rhode Island. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]

The district is located off Route 114, and encompasses most of Colt State Park and about 50 acres (20 ha) of adjacent private lands on the northern half of Poppasquash Neck.

The area was occupied by Wampanoag Indians for hundreds of years and eventually settled by British colonists in the 17th century after King Philip's War. There is a broad array of architecture in the district including Greek Revival and Colonial houses.[2]
