Welcome to the Tiverton Historical Society website!


The Tiverton Historical Society is selling jams and jellies, as well as other Tiverton-named items such as “Older Than Dirt” caps, Nonquit school and Tiverton mugs. Those that walk through Weetamoo Woods – or would like to start but don’t know where, you can purchase our own A School Guide to Weetamoo Woods, that relates the history and flora along trails within the woods. It was based on the guided walks formally done with the schoolchildren of Tiverton, but is full of facts and colored pictures any hiking adult would like as well.

This year we have made available a boxed “Taste of Tiverton” set of three jams/jellies or mug and two jams/jellies for $20 for you to purchase as a gift – or for yourself. Flavors include: Barton Seedless Sugarless Blackberry, Bulgarmarsh Blueberry, Seapowet Sugarless Strawberry-Rhubarb, Ranger Seedless Red Raspberry, Pocasset Peach, Awashonk Apricot, Chace-Cory Double Cherry, Brayton Road Seedless Black Raspberry, Eagleville Elderberry, Captain Almy Apple Cinnamon, and Sakonnet Red Currant.

The Taste of Tiverton items, hats, books, and mugs are available at Gray’s Ice Cream.

Remember, all purchases and donations to the Tiverton Historical Society are tax-deductible!

We hope to see you in May for our first event of the year!


We invite you to visit the historical Chace-Cory House, located at 3908 Main Road at Tiverton Four Corners in the small town of Tiverton, Rhode Island, the smallest state in the USA. The museum house is open for tours from 2-4:30 PM on Sunday during the months of June to September (or by appointment) and is the headquarters of the Tiverton Historical Society. We sponsor a number of events throughout the year and welcome you to participate in them. In order to keep the roof over our head maintained, we need to charge a small fee for tours. Admission is free to Tiverton Historical Society (THS) members and children under 12 years, $3 for non-members, and $2 for students and seniors (55 years+). Directions
