The original house was built by William Sprague in 1790 and remained the family homestead for four generations.  At first, farming was their primary interest.  However, in 1808 after machinery for spinning cotton was invented, the Sprague converted a small grist mill on the nearby Pocasset River into one of the first cotton mills in New England.  This was the beginning of the “Sprague Empire” which later spread throughout the Pawtuxet River valley. (This excerpt taken from the Governor Sprague Mansion website)

Triggs Memorial Golf Course was conceived by Ross in the early 1930's and opened in the spring of 1932. As is typical of many Ross designs, Triggs Memorial is considered an exceptional layout featuring long difficult par 4's, "reachable" par 5's, and spectacular par 3's. The design follows the natural contours of the site with moderate and relatively gentle changes in elevation and small strategically bunkered greens. (This excerpt taken from the Triggs Memorial Golf Course website)
