What You Can Buy in Little Compton Between $1 Million and $7 Million

Saturday, May 11, 2024

The folks at Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International have three properties to highlight in Little Compton.

In 1682, the town of Little Compton was incorporated by the Plymouth Colony, which, of course, was the first permanent European settlement in New England founded by English Pilgrims. It became part of Rhode Island in 1747 and today is home to Rhode Island’s only official “town common,” listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

It is the definition of idyllic.
