Welcome to the Tiverton Historical Society website!


April showers (rain and snow!) bring May flowers. And we will showcase them at our annual plant & bake sale fundraiser on the Chace-Cory House grounds on Saturday, May 7th from 9 AM to 2 PM.

Historical Society members are asked to bring either a labeled potted plant for sale and/or labeled baked goods item (with suggested price) for us to sell. Drop it off at CCH on the Friday before from 4-5:30 or early Saturday morning. If you can’t bring something, then please stop by and buy something to support our fundraising efforts. We had a lot of damage over the winter with burst pipes from the cold snap, and need to cover our expenses. We’d also like to restore the corn crib this year and lumber costs keep rising!

We hope to see you this month 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
