Welcome to the Tiverton Historical Society website!
Follow us on Facebook!


Tiverton Historical Society members (and those who wish to join on the spot) will be privileged to see items belonging to the Society that are not usually on display. We are highlighting five at this year’s Membership Day: the silk Washington’s Regiment flag, an original copy of the Punkateest Purchase, a quilt made from the uniform of Revolutionary War Brigadier General Peleg Wadsworth (grandfather of poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow), a whalebone yarn winder, and whale teeth. These items are on display for this day and time only! Mark the date and time on your calendars and come see history in person on the last day of the season!


In addition to the small fee we charge for the tours of our circa 1730 house museum (see below), we need more than that to restore the corn crib. Building materials cost a lot of money, as those of you who own homes know. Any monetary donation will help! Please send what you can to the PO Box listed on the “Contact THS” page or drop by when we’re open on Sundays through August (2-4:30) or at our Friday night Board meetings (4-5:30).


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
