SERVPRO Helps Assess and Recommend Suitable Solutions for Mold Damage in North Kingstown

In 1674, the colonial government founded the town of Kings Towne, which covered present-day Narragansett, South Kingstown, Exeter, and North Kingstown. Later, Kings Towne was split, forming North Kingstown and South Kingstown. The development of the area started when Richard Smith and Roger Williams settled in the area and established trading posts. Roger was a staunch advocate of the separation of state and church, religious freedoms, and fair dealings with Native Americans.

North Kingstown has played various roles with significance nationally. For instance, the Navy Construction Battalion, or Seabees as they are popularly known, was based in Davisville. Seabees excelled in the Vietnam War, considering they were the first among the American forces to deploy. Their most recognizable achievement in that conflict was constructing clandestine camps for Special Forces deep in the Vietnam jungles. The Seabee Museum & Memorial Park commemorates the efforts of these forces. The town was also the birthplace of Gilbert Stuart, the artist who painted George Washington's impression on the one-dollar bill.

North Kingstown Monuments 

Exploring the town gives visitors a chance to view structures from different eras commemorating various activities popular at the time.

  • Smith's Castle

It is the oldest plantation house still standing in America. The castle stands on the land Roger Williams bought from the Narragansett tribe and established a trading post. Later, Richard Smith bought the property and built the fortified house known today as the Smith Castle. You can visit the castle to walk the trails, explore the gardens or get some items from the gift shop.

  • Casey Farm

The property is one of the oldest working farms in the area that started operations in 1702 and was owned by different generations of the Casey family until 1955. The unique thing about the farm is its 10-mile dry-laid stone wall. Visitors can participate in community-supported agricultural programs or purchase organic produce.

  • Gilbert Stuart Home and Museum

The home where Gilbert Stuart, the portraitist, spent the first six years of his life, still stands today. His father owned the home and operated a water-driven snuff mill in the basement. Later the home turned to a tavern when the family left the area leading to the loss of the wheel and the mill. In 1931, architectural historian Norman Isham started restoring the property and installed a new wheel and snuff mill. Visitors can explore colonial-style furniture and reproductions of some of Gilbert Stuart’s works.
