The Kentish Guard Armory on Pierce Street was built in 1843. The Greek Revival style of the armory is considered by architectural historians to be of outstanding architectural value and of great historic value at the national level. The building has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1971. The armory is unique since it is believed to be the only armory of its kind built during this period just prior to the Mexican War. Little has been done to change it over the years. (This excerpt taken from the Kentish Guards website)
Casey Farm image
Saunderstown, RI
(range: 5 miles)
Located near Newport, Casey Farm had access to goods imported from England, enabling its early owners to live fashionably. The region’s economy was tied to the slave trade, and this plantation was one of several in the region supplying plantations in the South and the West Indies. By 1755, one out of every three Rhode Island residents was enslaved, most of them in the South County region where Casey Farm is located. Starting in the mid-nineteenth century, the Casey family leased the property to tenant farmers but retained two rooms in the house for their own occasional summer use. (This excerpt taken from the Casey Farm website)
