I'll be up in MA near the RI border and hope to put in enough time to make it over to the Higgins it will a bit of a drive but I am sure it will be worth it.

I missed this part but there is Agecroft Hall here. A tudor home taken apart and brought over from England and reassembled that is a nice place to stop. It has a great deal of period art and furniture. Next door to that is the Virginia house a 12th century home that was the Priory of the Augustinian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem in Warwick and also was taken apart and brought over here.
