SERVPRO can help restore your South Kingstown home after water damage

Not surprisingly, South Kingstown was formed when Kingstown split in two in 1722. In 1723 the town was incorporated and is now the seat of Washington County, Rhode Island. Its history reflects the happenings of its time, including the encounters between settlers and Native Americans. In 1675 the Narragansett were defeated in the Great Swamp (western South Kingstown) by the colonists to become their final defeat.

When you visit South Kingstown, you may hear people referring to it as part of South County. 

Do not let this confuse you, as locals tend to use Washington and South County interchangeably. The beauty of the area can be felt throughout, whether you are a beach-lover or not. Wildlife preserves, farms, and beaches are all part of what Rhode Island's southernmost region has to offer. All eleven towns in the County cater to its visitors and entice them with their hiking trails, water sports, and relaxing beaches.

Not far from South Kingstown, you can enjoy a few historical structures. For example, the Towers are located in Narragansett and are the only remaining structure of the Narragansett Pier Casino, famous in the 1880s. The Casino showcased Victorian architecture and was a fun retreat for its visitors. Dancing, the beach, bowling, tennis, and billiards were a few of the activities taking place on this landmark. Sadly, it burned during the Great Fire of September 1900. Today, the Towers are still standing, and it has become a preferred location for weddings, performances, and social events.

If you love the performing arts, Theatre by the Sea is just a few minutes from South Kingstown and offers programming for adults and children alike. Its unique location makes for a beautiful evening out and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. It hosted a summer camp between 1928 and 1933 and has since withstood the effects of natural disasters and economic downturns. 

After changing hands over the years, it is now under Bill Hanney’s expert direction.

There is much to see and do in South Kingstown, so take your time to explore the region’s beauty on foot or your bike at your leisure. Make sure to include the following on your list-

  • The South County History Center
  • University of Rhode Island
  • Hera Gallery
