The Codding Farm at 217 High Street has been the family homestead for two separate families, both of which became the leading names in the jewelry industry during two separate centuries. In 2001, Susanne Lestage sold the land which consisted of 58 acres and buildings to the town of North Attleboro. In 2006, the property was divided and the Historical Commission was given stewardship of the house, barn and 3.8 acres of the land. The Commission constructed 25 raised garden beds in 2013 to form the Community Gardens. In 2017, the gardens became a non-profit organization. The garden beds were moved directly behind the historic house and the beds were expanded to 31. The Town of North Attleboro has welcomed North Attleborough Community Garden's willingness to take over the operations and fund the garden space. In 2019, a new board was formed and has plans to forge many partnerships with the varied stakeholders in the community to help those in need through food donation or access to a garden plot.
