Sakonnet Digital History
Sakonnet Historical is a collaborative project between the Brown Center for Public Humanities, the Tiverton Public Library, and the Little Compton Historical Society to curate the stories and histories of the Sakonnet River area.
Visit the project website at Sakonnet Historical to read the latest entries on sites of historical and cultural importance in Little Compton and Tiverton, Rhode Island. These entries contain information about local points of interest, augmented with historic images and media from archival collections and historical publications. All of the entries are tagged on the project’s GPS-enabled map, making it easy to locate these sites on the contemporary landscape. Sakonnet Historical can also be downloaded as a free app, accessible through iTunes App Stores and Google Play, making it possible to create your own self-guided tour to explore these sites in person by car, bicycle, or even on foot.
The project is made possible in part by a grant from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
