Tiverton and Little Compton sit perched off the mainland of Rhode Island, where they have carved out a unique culture and history for centuries. The sketches contained in this book provide an in-depth look at the region, tracing its evolution through architecture, like the Nathaniel Briggs House, believed to be the oldest in the region; through industry, detailing the establishment of the Old Colony and Newport Railroad; and through some of the region's famous people and events. Learn how General William Barton captured British general Prescott in 1777 and how Captain Benjamin Church became a heroic Indian fighter, defeating King Philip. Author Richard V. Simpson traces the inextricably linked history of these two towns.
